Biography

I am a biologist by training, but I have also more than two decades worth of experience developing various informatics tools and resources, ranging from commercial applications to real-time scientific data acquisition software, to bioinformatics data integration systems, standards, and ontologies. My research interests are in reusable and interoperable software and data, large-scale data integration, and in building open, sustainable eScience infrastructure. I am PI of the NSF-funded project on creating a model and standard for phyloreferencing, and I am co-PI of the (also NSF-funded) Phenoscape project (http://phenoscape.org) on ontological annotation of evolutionary phenotype observations. I also serve as co-convener of the Biodiversity Information Standards (TDWG) Interest Group on Phylogenetics Standards. Before joining Duke's Center for Genomic and Computational Biology (GCB), I was at the US National Evolutionary Synthesis Center (NESCent), where I initiated many of NESCent's cyberinfrastructure initiatives aimed at grass-roots building of community capacity. Before that, I worked for almost 10 years in functional genome informatics in the biopharmaceutical sector, where among other things I built SymAtlas, one of the first decidedly gene-centric database integrating genome annotation databases with gene function data.
