Kathleen Halley-Octa ’10: Research Education and Communications Manager

After graduating from CofC in 2010, I made a jump to the administrative side of academia and entered the field of Research Administration. I currently serve as the Research Education and Outreach Manager at the Georgia Institute of Technology. My team is responsible for teaching faculty and staff across disciplines how to find funding opportunities, write and submit grant proposals, and manage research projects. In previous positions, I’ve worked directly with faculty members at both Georgia Tech and Kennesaw State University to develop grant proposals and manage research projects. I also serve on the National Council of University Research Administrators’ Southeastern Regional Leadership Committee. I currently live in Atlanta with my husband, Chris, and our dog, Yogi. Outside of work, I enjoy running, yoga, and staying in touch with my English major roots by participating in my neighborhood book club, Gin and Phonics.
