Who I Am
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 applications and systems for research data sharing and analysis, applied to all research fields.
What am I currently interested in? Open science to facilitate access and reuse of research data and code, build software to enhance the quality and productivity of scientific outcomes, improve research data management, and establish multidisciplinary collaborations with the aid of technology and a human touch.
