In her role as Acting Director of the Office of Undergraduate Research (for AY 2021–22), she works with the Committee on Undergraduate Research to support students seeking research opportunities, students actively engaged in research, and faculty mentoring of students conducting research. We also work to increase the availability of research opportunities for Oberlin students and to ensure equitable access to research.
