Research Gate



I am a Cancer Prevention Fellow with the National Cancer Institute. I hold a PhD in Human Centered Design & Engineering from the University of Washington, where I worked with Prof. Charlotte Lee in the Computer Supported Collaboration Lab. I also hold a Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) from the UW, and a Master of Public Health (MPH) from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

My research focuses on the coordination and support of collaborative biomedical research, especially on the design, development, implementation and evaluation of infrastructural support for team science. My completed projects include an investigation of how cancer epidemiology post-docs reuse Small Data datasets and my NCI-funded research on Coordinating Centers in collaborative cancer-epidemiology. A portion of this latter project was the focus of my dissertation.

As a Fellow at the NCI, I am developing an independent research program focused on designing and building evidence-based infrastructures to support team science in cancer epidemiology and health services research. My specific areas of interest include coordinating centers; consortia governance policies; evaluation of team science processes and infrastructure; and data sharing, reuse and harmonization.
