As NCI’s scientific IT engagement officer, I not only identify how technology can help augment the work of NCI staff but also lead return-to-work and continuity of operations activities. I also host the CBIIT summer internship program, which gives undergraduates an opportunity to see how NCI drives discovery through data science, informatics, and IT.
