Open science advocate and recovering researcher.

I am the Director of Academic Alliances and Data Strategy at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. In this role, I develop partnerships with academic and non-profit research organizations in support of Hutch Data Commonwealth initiatives.

Previously, I was a Program Officer for the Data-Driven Discovery Initiative, an effort within the Moore Foundation’s Science Program focused on promoting academic data science. I also worked as Director of Strategic Development for the Collaborative Knowledge Foundation (Coko), and as a Research Data Specialist at the California Digital Library where I was involved in development and implementation of many of the University of California Curation Center’s services, and worked to promote data sharing and good data management practices among researchers.

I received a B.A. in Marine Science and a Ph.D. in Biological Oceanography from the MIT/WHOI Joint Program.
