My academic, research and professional background has included significant grantsmanship experience at all stages of the grant process. I've authored successful grant applications, mentored others designing grant-funded projects, served on review committees, as well as directed the pre- and post-award management of sponsored projects. This experience includes work on grants in a wide range of fields targeted at both academic and public projects.
