Sue Rodriguez

Executive Assistant Oden Institute


Sue Rodriguez joined the Oden Institute in 2008 as administrative support for the new 5-year KAUST-UT Austin Academic Excellence Alliance and has since served as the research administrator for several research groups, currently the Center for Computational Geosciences and Optimization and the Computational Research in Ice and Ocean Systems group.

She earned a BA in Spanish (with minors in French and Romance Linguistics) from the University of Michigan and an MA in Foreign Language Education from UT Austin. She taught Spanish and English as a Second Language, coordinated intensive English programs, and provided writing, editing, and administrative services in international academic and volunteer settings before pivoting into research administration, where she especially appreciates the daily opportunity to exercise her left brain and to observe the Oden Institute's world-class research in process.
