Ashley Williams

Introducing the IRB-SBS Student Research Support Specialist: Ashley Williams, IRB-SBS Research Compliance Manager

Ashley is passionate about working with students as they design their own research projects. With over 20 years of experience in teaching and advising undergraduate and graduate students, she is happy to work with students at any phase of the research process such as thinking through research ideas, helping to determine if you need to be reviewed by the IRB-SBS, and assisting you as you work through the IRB-SBS review process.

With a PhD in Linguistics, Ashley taught at UVA in American Studies and Anthropology. Her research examined questions about language, identity, ethnicity, and gender in locations as diverse as the San Francisco and suburban Detroit Chinese-American communities, and the online world of satirical blogs.
