For nearly 20 years, I have been involved in local and national leadership positions of Sigma Xi, the scientific research society. Sigma Xi is one of the oldest, largest and most prestigious scientific organizations in the world, with over 200 past and current members receiving the Nobel prize. Through national elections, I have served as the Director of the Northwest region of Sigma Xi, the Director of the Comprehensive Colleges & Universities constituency group, and a total of five years on its international Board of Directors.



I was recently elected to a three-year term on the Board of Directors of the International Society for Salt Lake Research, the world’s leading organization focused on the study, management, and conservation of saline lakes. I have participated in ISSLR conferences in Argentina, China, and Russia, and am now involved in planning the 2020 conference in Spain.
