Laura M. von Bosau

I’ve been an Administrative Assistant at MIT through RLE since 1993, joining the Grossman Group in 2015.  I provide non-scientific support by handling administrative tasks necessary to keep things running so that the group members can focus on their research.  I’m a resource for knowing or finding out Institute rules and practices (“how to do something”) in order to ensure we’re in compliance while also providing layperson explanations of what we’re doing and why to other administrative offices as needed.  My focus is taking the big picture of what this group is working to accomplish and determining what administrative details have to be in place to support that picture and implementing them accordingly.  I also provide administrative support to 3.091: Introduction to Solid-State Chemistry each fall semester with the goal of allowing Prof. Grossman and the teaching assistants to focus more on the actual teaching of the class, as well as assisting the course’s students.

I graduated from Boston University’s Metropolitan College summa cum laude with a Bachelor’s degree in English.  Outside of work, I can be found reading and spending time with my family and community of friends, especially if it involves poking around used book stores to find new-to-me treasures!  I will read anything if it’s well-written.
