It is with mixed emotions that I share the news of the departure of Karen Deak. Her last day in the office will be August 31st.
Karen has served as the AAD for Research, the Graduate School, and the IDEA Center since spring of 2019. She has been a valued colleague, a champion for her causes, and a great teammate. We will miss her insight and humor.
Karen has accepted a position at Cooley, LLP as their IP Lead Patent Formalities Specialist. In this position, she’ll use her background as a patent agent to lead a growing team which is responsible for all of the supporting documentation for clients’ patent applications.
Please join me in saying farewell to Karen and congratulating her on this new opportunity. She and John (and Ziggi!) will continue to reside in Dunne Hall and be here on ND’s campus.
