Open science and data management leader with strengths in developing academic data science programs, driving research software development, and coordinating collaborative projects in data-intensive research. Skilled in forging partnerships, aligning activities with strategic organizational goals, and connecting individuals to facilitate the progress of science.

Currently I am Program Manager for Open Science in Chan Zuckerberg Initiative’s Science Program.

Previously I was the Director of Alliances and Data Strategy at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. I led a team to strategically support data-intensive research at Fred Hutch through internal and external partnerships, community building, infrastructure development, and new initiatives designed to facilitate data science. I was also a Program Officer for the Data-Driven Discovery Initiative, an effort within the Moore Foundation’s Science Program focused on promoting academic data science.
