I’m the Chief Data Science and Technology Officer at the Institute for Quantitative Social Science at Harvard University. My career journey has included research in astrophysics, design of software for astronomical observations, development of learning and data management systems for education and biotechnologies, and now creating research applications for data sharing and analysis.
What am I currently interested in? Open science to facilitate access and reuse of research data and analysis, build software to improve scientific outcomes, and establish multidisciplinary collaborations with the aid of technology and a human touch.
