Current Role at Stanford


In the Department of Electrical Engineering, I oversee the review of graduate applications involving faculty and student readers, the communication of admission and fellowship decisions to applicants, and recruitment and orientation programs for incoming graduate students. I work closely with the Associate Chair of Admissions and the Director of Student & Academic Services on an ongoing basis to assess department policies and processes regarding admissions. I supervise and work collaboratively with the Graduate Admissions Specialist to manage the entire admissions operation for the department.
