I believe in administration as an appreciation of the rich complexity of the university, and as facilitation of the success of others through mentoring and good governance. To know more, here is my Philosophy of leadership.
I contributed to the governance of my institution in a variety of capacities. I served as Research Development Fellow at the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs, an 20% administrative position to support the ORSP Division of Research Development as temporary, part-time research developer. I was Member of a team aimed at facilitating new proposals and interdisciplinary collaborations leading to funding awards across the University. I held the position of Vice chair of the Faculty Senate, served in a variety of of standing committees and task forces including, but not limited to, the Strategic Planning Council, which led to contributing to a variety of reports to the senior administration. My CVprovides more details.
The same ethical principles - facilitating the success of others and good governance - drive my service to the discipline. In 2017-2018 I chaired the European Specialty Group at the Association of American Geographers. I also worked as editor of journal special issues and as book editor (see CV)
