As an Academic Dean, I support first year students in Gilbert-Addoms and Blackwell, sophomores who lived in Brown their first year, and juniors and seniors who lived in Gilbert-Addoms and Epworth their first year. I am the curriculum dean for Trinity College and the liaison for natural and quantitative sciences majors. I also teach courses and advise students in Psychology and Neuroscience and will serve as a mentor for SPIRE fellows.

About me: 

I earned my Ph.D. at Duke, and a B.A. from the University of Colorado, Boulder.
