Janice has been with the UCLA Computer Science Department's Laboratory for Advanced Systems Research (LASR) since 1994. She is an assistant to principal investigators Peter Reiher and Leonard Kleinrock, and also assists several other PIs and the department itself on an ad hoc basis.
Janice is responsible for
of grants and timely submission of new proposals, and also for
financial forecasts and
calculations. She edits nearly all project reports, proposal
sections, technical papers, and Ph.D theses for several faculty members
and their graduate students . . . something that often requires
substantial rewrites. Janice is also responsible for writing and
editing the department's annual report and for putting together news
items for the department's website.
Prior to joining LASR, Janice
worked for a
company and for several small software development firms. She holds
a bachelor's degree (English literature) from Loyola-Marymount
and for several years was the editor for Cascade Pass, a Los
Angeles-based publisher of children's books.
