Former bench scientist with the goal of improving the biomedical research enterprise. Over the last several years, I have worked on improving science training, communication and policy for junior scientists by volunteering with various organizations. These include the National Postdoctoral Association, the American Society for Cell Biology, and the Association for Women in Science. Most recently I was a policy activist at the non-profit organization Future of Research (FoR). I am currently a member of the Board of Directors at FoR, and my goal is to promote science policy and advocacy for junior scientists, and to gather and present data on various issues in the scientific system.
