Professor and Associate Dean for Research
School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences
Anne is a rare kind of mentor who leads not with just her head, but also with her heart. Many professors can develop research projects and teach a class, but few can support students with the compassion that Anne does. It’s her empathetic leadership that allows Anne to compete for research grants while supporting her students’ mental wellbeing, to establish innovative partnerships while fighting for equity and inclusion in STEM, and produce high class research while living a full and rich life (and encouraging her students to do the same).
Anne’s support and encouragement inspired me to push my dissertation in new and bold directions, to lead with empathy, and to choose to be a good person before a good scientist.
