Shanthi has led important research projects and has been an active collaborator and mentor during her time with SPHERU, which began January 2007.

Shanthi has been a tireless and inspiring contributor to teaching, research, and community engagement through and as part of her research. We know how skillful she is at identifying the next important research questions, the way she is able to clarify ideas, and her ability to inspire her students and colleagues. These skills, and more, have made Shanthi a true colleague, a mentor, and a friend.

While we will miss her, we are also delighted that she has found this wonderful opportunity. We wish her the very best in her new role.

Congratulations, Shanthi!
