Kelly Bienhoff oversees curriculum development for forensic training workshops and monitoring and evaluation for the Program on Sexual Violence in Conflict Zones. Bienhoff also manages the department’s internship program and provides logistical, administrative, and programmatic support to consultants and staff.
