Research Program Manager, Academic Engagements

I’m the Research Management Lead at Facebook. I serve as the in-house adviser to executives and researchers regarding research oversight. I manage the Research Review process and participate in research and policy advisory committees; coordinate Facebook’s research activities, particularly those involving partnerships with external organizations; and monitor compliance with Facebook’s internal policies. Before joining Facebook, I spent 10 years running the non-medical IRB at Stanford University. I have a degree in physical therapy from the Satakunta University of Applied Sciences, master’s degree in sports science from SFSU, and an MBA from USF.
