Research experience, accessible biomedical data, measuring outcomes

Short Biography

I currently serve as the Director of Research Experience for the All of Us Research Program at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the US. Prior to this role, I have worked on various public interest technology and open data projects, mostly focused on health care and public engagement as a clinical researcher, strategy and operations manager, and user experience designer.

My journey towards working in the open began when I joined a congressional office in the US House of Representatives where I served as liaison for open data and innovation initiatives including the Open Source Technology Caucus, Constituent App Challenge, among other coalition activities with Democracy Fund, Georgetown University Beeck Center, and the Congressional Management Foundation.

Since then, I’ve written and spoken about the importance of open data, participatory lawmaking, and strengthening our civic infrastructures around the world through participation in Mozilla Foundation, Open Life Sciences, and Tech, Rebalanced.

My current work at NIH focuses on building a database to help transform the future of health research by equipping researchers nationwide with expansive health data from diverse populations, especially those underrepresented in biomedical research. In order to do this, I work on a team that develops frameworks and metrics to accurately measure progress towards our vision.

The aim of my fellowship is to bring together like-minded research software engineers (RSEs) and learn from each other about what signals help RSE leaders know they are building equitable and inclusive research software.
