Supervisory Health Science Administrator
As the Senior Biomedical Informatics Program Officer of the NCI Data Ecosystems Branch, I lead a team of research professionals and support staff within the Cancer Research Data Commons (CRDC). We collaborate in developing and implementing strategies focused on the creation and ongoing support of large-scale data sharing, management, and analysis tools to accelerate NCI-funded scientific research. My current research interests include the development of interoperable, multi-modal biological databases and accessible cloud applications to facilitate collaboration among researchers at all stages of their careers to perform large-scale, multi-modal analysis.
