Lovick P. Corn Royster Fellow
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
A limited number of Royster Dissertation Fellows are selected annually by an interdisciplinary committee of faculty on the basis of their superior achievement in graduate study, the significance of their dissertation research, and their potential as future leaders. During this fellowship, I’ll be working on completing the writing of my dissertation. To read about the Royster Society of Fellows, click the link to the left.
Instructor of Record
Friday Center for Continuing Education
Attuned to the broader societal and humane possibilities of making education available inside prisons, I created and teach one of the first self-paced, by-mail correspondence courses (Introduction to Interpersonal and Organizational Communication) tied to an accredited degree program through a partnership between my department at UNC and the Friday Center for Continuing Education.

I assist a research project led by Dr. Jill Fisher of the Center for Bioethics at UNC. The project, funded by the National Institutes of Health, originated as a 5-year study designed to explore the participation of healthy volunteers in Phase I clinical trials in the U.S. With a 4-year renewal, the project is now working on generating ethics and policy guidance that can provide advances in healthy volunteer welfare and the translational efficacy of Phase I trials.
