    Current Role

    I oversee OCIO’s Data Management and Analysis Program (DMAP), which aims to build a highly secure, integrated data infrastructure. The goals of this infrastructure are to accelerate the pace of research by streamlining management and analysis of high value scientific data, promoting resource stewardship, lowering barriers to collaboration and secondary data use, and promoting FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable) standards.

    Towards these goals, I work with intramural scientists to identify and develop broadly useful data management and analysis platforms (e.g., the NIH Integrated Data Analysis Portal; the NCI HALO Digital Pathology; and 2D Imaging Resource) and integrate high-impact data resources and new capabilities into the data environment.
