The EERC is pleased to introduce Sara Lahr as the newest member of our Research Information Systems (RIS) group. Sara’s education, a B.A. degree in Computer Science from the University of Minnesota, Morris, and her prior work experience make her a valuable member of our team, providing software solutions for our clients that allow them to operate more efficiently and process large amounts of information quickly. Sara brings experience and expertise in developing Web-based applications, optimizing the user interface for efficiency and ease of use, and mobile application development to enhance accessibility and functionality for our clients.

Lahr’s strong work ethic started on a dairy farm near Sauk Centre, Minnesota. Her passion for software development started in her senior year of high school, when her math teacher recommended that she take a beginner computer science class which he also taught. “After that, I was hooked,” she says.

“I enjoy the variety of tasks that our team gets to work on as well as hearing about the different research projects that take place at the EERC,” says Lahr. “I have also been impressed by the helpfulness and friendliness of my coworkers.”

Lahr’s enjoyment of reading and learning about philosophy as well as advances and trends in the technology world help her continually prepare for the opportunities ahead. When not developing new software solutions, she loves baking, board games, classic literature, and spending time with friends and family.
