My research focuses on the social and organizational challenges of data reuse and large-scale collaboration among scientists acting within highly institutionalized sociotechnical systems. I was previously a Science Advisor in the Directorate for Social Behavioral and Economic Sciences, a Program Director, and Acting Deputy Director of the Office of Cyberinfrastructure at the National Science Foundation supporting distributed, interdisciplinary scientific collaboration for complex data-driven and computational science. I received my PhD from the University of Arizona, my MA from the Claremont Graduate University, and my BA from the University of California, Berkeley.
