Corinna is a Senior Compliance Specialist for the Office for Research Integrity at Northwestern University and an Adjunct Professor in Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) for the McCormick School of Engineering. She is also co-chair (with Mary Walsh, HMS) of the Forensic Special Interest Group (FSIG) for the Association of Research Integrity Officers, a subject matter expertise consortium she co-founded establishing discourse on executing effective sequestration and analysis of research data, forensic practice and methodological innovation in research misconduct investigations. In addition to her Northwestern and ARIO roles she also consults for Maidstone Consulting Group LLC.
After completing her Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from the Institut de Science et d’Ingenierie Supramoleculaire of the University of Strasbourg, France, she moved to the US for dual postdoctoral fellowships in Departments of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering at Northwestern University followed by a fellowship at the National Academy of Engineering working in the Online Ethics Center. She returned to Northwestern both as an Instructor for their RCR curriculum and as an Investigator supporting research misconduct proceedings at the University. While there, given the importance of having a legal foundation in the compliance world, she completed a Master of Science in Law at the Northwestern Pritzker School of Law.
