She develops and leads a variety of programs to support students’ academic success and enrich their experience at Stanford, works to advance graduate student diversity, and directs the DARE (Diversifying Academia, Recruiting Excellence) Doctoral Fellowship Program for advanced doctoral students who want to prepare for academic careers and whose presence will help diversify the professoriate.
