What are the key aspects of your role at Northeastern? What do you enjoy most about what you do?
As the associate dean of graduate school administration, I oversee the operations of our graduate programs – MS and PhD – on our Boston campus, at our regional campuses, and in our online programs. I also manage graduate admission, enrollment, advising and student services for the college. I enjoy the great variety of projects I get to work on and people I get to work with.
What’s the most compelling thing to you about the work that goes on at CCIS?
Computer science is the nexus of everything that is “next.” I am fascinated by all of the interdisciplinary programs and research that the college is involved in. I enjoy working with the talented students and researchers who create the applications that will shape how we live and interact in the near future.
Where did you grow up or spend your most defining years?
I grew up in Poughkeepsie, New York, where I lived until I left for college. I spent the years after college bouncing between Chicago, New York, Poughkeepsie, and ultimately back to Boston, where I have been since 2005.
What led you to work in your field?
I did not consider a career in higher education administration until about five years after college. After trying a few other careers, I now wonder how I could have considered anything else.
