Heather M. Upshaw

Leadership Giving Officer

The Department of Chemical Engineering at MIT is a truly extraordinary community, and I am privileged to spend every day with brilliant scientists and engineers whose work will have a lasting positive impact on the world. I work with alumni and friends to ensure that Paula Hammond has everything that she needs to support our faculty, students, and postdocs. This ranges from endowed funds for fellowships and professorships to support for our vital physical facilities to discretionary funds for exciting new educational initiatives.
