I am a physicist by training and data scientist at heart. As Product Manager of the Research IT team I am passionate about our mission to build the next generation of products to leverage healthcare research and analytics.

I?ve had the privilege of working on many different data centric projects here at Stanford and elsewhere, including developing the algorithms for SciReader: a cloud based recommender system for biomedical literature. Prior to transitioning to healthcare and medicine, I was a research analyst at Chandra X-Ray Observatory and the Solar Dynamics Observatory.
