Research Success Coordinator
If you need a quick answer to a random question or a snappy list of trivia questions, research success coordinator Tyler Stricker is your guy. He’s also the go-to person for training and events. Tyler’s primary work responsibilities are to coordinate the research development opportunities offered by the Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR).
Prior to joining the OVPR in January 2019, Tyler was an instructional development specialist for the Child Welfare Research and Training Program at Iowa State. In this role, he designed and developed online and face-to-face training programs.

What do you predict Iowa State researchers will be working on (discovering) in 2050?
“I think researchers will be working on ultra-light building materials to reduce the costs of transporting them around the world and potentially off-planet, as well as continuing to work on alternative fuel sources to further the reaches of humanity.”
Tyler can help with: Developing engaging presentations, incorporating interactive elements into trainings, assisting with online course development and finding the best room for your event.
