About

I am currently the IT Service Delivery Lead & Engagement Manager for the Harvard Kennedy School. I also founded and co-chair Harvard’s Women in Technology group (@HarvardWIT) in 2013, and have been organizing lectures and events since then to promote inclusivity at Harvard, to collaborate, and to discuss our experiences as women in technology at Harvard.

Prior to this, I was a web developer/applications programmer for the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University. I created interactive mapping applications using javascript and ESRI ArcGIS. I was also the Managing Editor for Harvard Papers in Botany and the Web Manager for the Harvard University Herbaria. I started out as a botanist and worked for several years as a horticulturist, and then in a plant phylogenetic lab conducting seed germination studies and DNA sequencing experiments. I also volunteer at the Arboretum leading tours of the grounds.
