Recent Highlights

Because of my previous work on the USDA Panels I was selected by USDA to be the National Panel Manager for the Rural and Community Development topic area of the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program for 2015/16.

Job Description: “ Many NIFA competitive programs utilize a panel manager who is selected by the program leader to assist with administration of the program. The panel manager is an active, established scientist possessing broad-based knowledge in the program area. The Panel Manager will have experience in research, education, and extension as is appropriate for the program. The professional stature of the panel managers within their respective scientific communities brings additional visibility and recognition to the program. Panel managers become part-time, temporary (1-2 years) USDA employees. Duties of the panel manager include assisting program leaders in selecting panel members and ad hoc reviewers, assigning proposals to reviewers, chairing the panel meeting, and assisting program leaders with funding decisions”
