    BioSusannah Barsom joined the E-IPER staff in spring of 2016, and is the chief academic staff officer of E-IPER, with responsibility for overall program management. She works on program and curriculum development, student advising, and strategic planning, and collaborates with E-IPER and School colleagues to ensure effective management of the program.

    Before coming to Stanford, Sue was a faculty member at The Pennsylvania State University, where she served in the Sustainability Institute as Director of Academic Programs and, prior to that, in the Department of Biobehavioral Health. A biological anthropologist with degrees in anthropology from Wellesley College (BA), the University of Arizona (MA) and Penn State University (PhD), Sue has focused her research on human reproductive ecology and women’s reproductive health in North American and Venezuelan populations. More recently she has been engaged in research on sustainability education.

    Having spent her formative years in Laramie, Wyoming, Sue is glad to be back in the West after a long absence. When she's not working on E-IPER projects, she enjoys spending time with family and friends, reading, and appreciating the outdoors—bicycling, hiking, gardening, and most other activities on offer.
