High-Energy Physics Advisory Panel to the National Science Foundation and the US Department of Energy.
- Women in Science: EHS served as member of the US Delegation to the IUPAP International Conference on Women in Physics in 2008 and 2011 (see her two articles in the CSWP Gazette). Drawing on these experiences, she has given colloquia in the US and Japan on issues related to women's under-representation in physics at institutions. From 1994-2003, EHS led the Pathways Program for high-school girls that she founded at Boston University. Here are a few articles published about Pathways in the BU Bridge, Boston University Today, and the Daily Free Press.
