Within my department, I currently serve as Associate Chair. At the university level, I serve as a Faculty Research Director with the Center for Galapagos Studies and am the vice chair of the Galápagos Science Center Advisory Board. I am on the Advisory Council of the Carolina Population Center. I previously served on Faculty Council as the untenured Social Science representative and have served on several university-wide committees including the initial phase of the Curriculum 2019 Committee, the interdisciplinary Data Science minor committee, and numerous grant and special interest review panels.
General Education Oversight Committee: I bring experience to curriculum issues as the chair of the curriculum committee in anthropology, the instructor of a large Gen Ed course, a member of the initial planning group for the new Gen Ed Curriculum and a co-developer of a new major and minor. I am committed to the value of an interdisciplinary and experiential undergraduate experience and would bring that commitment to this role.
Arts and Sciences Advisory Committee: I believe that my interdisciplinary research, training and leadership in social and health sciences provide me with the broad background needed to serve effectively in this position. I am committed to junior faculty mentorship and development and would look forward to expanding this role as a member of ASAC.
