    Current Role

    As a clinical bioinformatician in semantic infrastructure, I’m creating a common entry point for the NCI Cancer Research Data Commons to make content more accessible, as well as incorporating content from the caDSR and EVS. I’m also leveraging my graph database expertise to support the Shared Semantic Infrastructure Services project as well as a project that semi-automatically matches patients to clinical trials using electronic health record data.
