    Director of Finance and Operations, Psychology

    Current Role at StanfordI currently manage the Department of Psychology within the School of Humanities and Sciences. The program offers undergraduate, masters and doctoral degrees in Psychology, and conducts research in the areas of affective science, neuroscience, cognitive psychology, developmental psychology and social psychology. The department also incorporates programs such as the Center for Social Psychological Answers to Real-World Questions (SPARQ), the Project for Education Research that Scales (PERTS), the College Transition Collaborative (CTC), and the Center for Mind, Brain and Computation (MBC).

    I direct the administrative functions of the department including finance and accounting, research administration, faculty affairs, human resources, student services, academic program management, facilities, and general administration. There are approximately 40 faculty, 70 doctoral students, 150 undergraduate majors, 40 postdoctoral scholars and 100 staff members in the department. I also serve as coach for other management staff at the university as part of the Stanford Manager's Academy program.

    Assist Prof (By Courtesy), Biology

    BioMoises (Moi) Exposito-Alonso is a Staff Associate in the Carnegie Department of Plant Biology and Assistant Professor (by courtesy) of Biology. His lab investigates whether and how plants will evolve to keep pace with climate change by conducting large-scale ecological and genome sequencing experiments. They develop computational methods to derive fundamental principles of evolution, such as how fast natural populations acquire new mutations and how past climates shaped continental-scale biodiversity patterns. The goal is to use these “first principles” and computational approaches to forecast evolutionary outcomes of populations under climate change to anticipate potential future biodiversity losses. Using this knowledge, the lab aims to develop new genome engineering methods to help species adapt to climate change instead of becoming extinct. Moi earned his Ph.D. in ecological genomics in 2018 from the Max Planck Institute in Tübingen, Germany. Prior to that, he received a MSc degree in quantitative and population genetics from the University of Edinburgh, Scotland, and a B.S. in biology from the University of Seville, Spain.
