President, Research Endurance
I help institutions build and strengthen research organizations and infrastructure. For over 20 years, I have worked with universities, academic medical centers, hospitals, independent research institutes, and other nonprofit scientific research institutions to address challenges and opportunities related to research enterprise strategy, management, and operations.
Leaders and faculty/scientists rely on my understanding of academic and research organizations and cultures to assess their competitive positions, develop and implement strategies, design and launch new research organizations, craft partnerships, and improve operations.
I have led consulting engagements at over 50 research institutions, and I strive to advance institutions’ pursuit of research excellence while maintaining focus on strategic investment of limited resources.
I have published papers and delivered presentations across multiple research strategy, leadership, and management areas. I also authored the book, Catalyzing Research: Research Leaders and the Complex Faculty/Administration Interface. This guide for research leaders focuses on the complex, challenging interface between faculty and administration, examining four areas: core research facilities, research centers and institutes, research development, and strategic research investment.
I hold a B.S. in Physics from the Georgia Institute of Technology, an M.S. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics from the University of Pennsylvania, and an M.A. in Science, Technology, and Public Policy from The George Washington University.
