Program Director, Digital Platform and Productization, IBM Research Design


IBM Research Austin, TX USA


I am a human living and working in Austin, Texas. Cell and developmental biologist by training; user-centered product person by trade. My interests range from technology and basic research to design and entrepreneurship.

In my current role, I am responsible the digital platform that runs both research.ibm.com and the IBM Research Portal for clients. I work with an almost indecently talented team of designers, developers and thinkers to ensure that the world can understand how deeply cool this organization is.

In previous professional lives, I have trained junior product managers, built project management software, run field ops for an underdog congressional campaign, built software for bioinformaticians, and explored the molecular underpinnings of pluripotency.

I enjoy a good, strong tea.
