Program Manager, School of Integrative Plant Science Plant Breeding and Genetics Section
I am the program manager for the EQUAL Lab, where I carry out administrative duties as well as serve on the management team of several international agricultural development projects. I have a strong interest and background in intercultural communication, having worked in international development for over five years, and in the study abroad field before joining Cornell in 2017. At Cornell, I began working to support grant-funded projects that seek to increase food security and the incomes of smallholder farmers in sub-Saharan Africa by improving staple crop varieties and enhancing their seed systems.
I hold a BA from Oberlin College (USA), and a Master's degree in French Literature from Boston University (USA). Originally from Ithaca, I returned here after going away to earn my degrees, live in France for two years, and in Boston for ten. I love living near family in my hometown while also getting to work with international colleagues every day, and traveling widely and regularly.
