Lauren Sheridan

Business Intelligence Specialist

Lauren Sheridan spent her first three years at the CFE as the Technology Acceleration Programs Manager specifically focused on the NSF funded I-Corps™ program. As her role evolved over the years, she took a vested interest in compiling all of the data related to the CFE’s faculty, researcher and educational programs and activity.  Her passion to use data driven decisions to create programs aligned with U-M’s College of Engineering and the CFE’s mission led to her transition to the role of Business Intelligence Specialist. Lauren designs, develops, implements and manages the CRM database system to capture and report on all activity as a center-wide resource. She is also collaborating on research and data collection for the NSF I-Corps programs focused on Engineering Entrepreneurship and Innovation Education with the Transforming Engineering Education Laboratory (TEEL) for the Department of Biomedical Engineering.

Lauren’s previous experience includes 6+ years account management and sales at two startups in Chicago, IT recruiting and program management for a non-profit organization.  She received her B.S. in Kinesiology from Indiana University, Bloomington and is currently enrolled as a graduate student at the U-M School of Information specializing in Information Analysis and Retrieval. She plans to graduate in spring of 2019!
