Karen Kueneman has a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Waterloo in Developmental Psychology with Early Childhood Education, and a Masters Degree from Western University in Library and Information Science. Karen has had hands-on experience as a researcher by collecting and analyzing data in projects as various as the play behavior of school-age children; relationship development of toddlers; humour and Type A behavior; post-partum depression and its effects on child development; and Phase IV trials of new antidepressant drugs. Prior to coming to the Faculty of Information and Media Studies, she was a Research Officer in the Faculty of Education for 9 years and before that she was an Ethics Officer at Western’s Office of Research Ethics for 5 years where she gained a great deal of experience in providing advice to researchers in preparing ethics proposals and responding to the recommendations of the Research Ethics Board. Karen’s main goal is to facilitate the navigation of the grant application process by faculty members. She identifies and shares funding opportunities, eligibility requirements, procedures, and deadlines with faculty members. She works closely with faculty members to assist them in preparing competitive grants by consulting, reviewing, editing and providing feedback on applications. She also works with individual faculty members to promote their research through knowledge mobilization opportunities and applications for honours and awards. Karen also assists faculty members to complete the data entry on ROLA applications.
