Graduate Student Issues
I currently serve as a student representative on the Graduate Program Steering Committee in the Duke Department of Neurobiology. In this role, I bring student perspectives to a faculty committee in order to provide suggestions for improvement of the PhD program and its resources. Specific changes for which I have advocated include structural modifications of core courses and clarification of the reporting process for student concerns.
I am currently working with my co-representative to support new initiatives such as an official department protocol for addressing reports, as well as ongoing diversity and inclusion efforts during annual recruitment.
