Research Program Manager, Academic Engagements

I am a Research Program Manager on the Facebook Academic Engagements team. I focus on fostering engaging collaborations, projects, programs, and conference activities for the Core Data Science and UX research teams. I help build strong strategic plans to help our research teams be impactful and bring value to the academic community.

Prior to joining Facebook, I worked at Stanford University in various program management roles. Most recently managing both the Neurosciences Ph.D. Program and the Neurobiology Postdoctoral program. For the majority of my time at Stanford, I have collaborated with researchers in all phases of their careers from graduate students to tenured faculty. I have a background in biology and received my master’s degree in public health with a concentration in management from the University of Arizona.
