Government Affairs

Meet your Government Affairs directors, learn how to identify and contact your state and federal elected officials, and keep track of current legislation:

Director of State and Local Government Affairs

I am a 4th year Ph.D. student in the School of Life Sciences studying the intersections of science and society. My research focuses the conceptualization of public engagement in discussions around emerging technologies like CRISPR and gene editing. I joined GPSA to advocate for graduate and professional students and the unique academic and professional pressures they face.

Director of Federal Government Affairs

I am a biology Ph.D. student. For my research, I work with rattlesnakes and study how hydration impacts the immune system. This is my fourth year in GPSA and second year as a Director for the External Affairs team.
