Who’s who in OSP?

OSP is overseen by Heidi Allen, PhD, Associate Professor and Associate Dean for Research. We are located on the 6th floor and are comprised of the following staff:

Katherine Rochmat, Director
Katherine Rochmat has worked at Columbia since the fall of 2000 in various positions in centers, departments and central administration at both CUMC and Morningside. She has experience in all aspects of sponsored projects management as well as in other administrative and financial procedures at the university. She is interested in understanding process and information flow and she enjoys working with faculty.

Karina Fantillo, Grants Manager
Karina learned about her Philippine roots and American culture through folk dancing in San Francisco, where she immigrated with her family as a child. A grant administrator for 14 years, she earned a BA in English and an MFA in Writing at the University of San Francisco.
Brea Pichon, Grants Manager
Brea (like the cheese!) has worked at Columbia since 2016 in progressing financial capacities via its Institutes and Centers. She is happy to boomerang back to Social Work with expanded institutional knowledge and ready familiarity with the community.
