portrait of lisa parkerResearch Administrator




I have worked for MSU for over 30 years in various departments. I have been a Research Administrator for the Institute for Quantitative Health Science and Engineering since August 2019. I started at MSU as a student employee for the Library in the summer of 1988. I was then hired on in a full-time staff position and have worked for Chemistry, Teacher Education, Human Development and Family Studies, Lyman Briggs College and now IQ. I have received two bachelors degrees from Michigan State — one in anthropology and one in accounting.

I have a wonderful family consisting of my husband, daughter, and 2 crazy dogs. I am the treasurer of my daughter’s parent council and am heavily active in that organization. In my free time I enjoy reading, running, and crafting.
