As a creative professional with a background in experimental science and advanced degrees in science and in business, I have lived and worked in the UK, in France, and in the USA. After starting my career as a research scientist, I gained twenty years experience of Information Technology leadership in pharmaceutical Research & Development (R&D). Most recently I have worked in nonprofits, including co-founding the nonprofit startup Illustrative Mathematics and putting in place the technology, systems and processes for web development, accounting, payroll, employee benefits and HR administration.
Since early 2018 I have worked for the Center for Economic Integrity as Communications Director, establishing a digital infrastructure (coalition websites, donor database, mailing lists etc.) to increase organizational capacity, adding accounting and payroll in 2019.
In the three years leading up to 2012, working for a leading international pharmaceutical company:
- I led the investigation into Cloud Computing for R&D
- I chaired the Cross Pharma HPC group – an industry forum for sharing non-proprietary information and best practices for High Performance Computing (HPC) in the Life Sciences
- I pioneered Agile methodologies for project management in R&D
- I developed the first website based on Microsoft SharePoint for collaboration in R&D
