My research is focused on the development and application of information standards to support interoperability and data exchange. We aim to enhance discovery across basic science, clinical, and community-based research and ultimately, develop new methods for tracking and understanding translational impact. I also serve as a co-director of the new CTSA National Center for Data to Health (CD2H) Coordinating Center where I work with the other directors and with the larger translational informatics community to help guide the cultural and technological changes necessary for data and informatics to improve research and health care.

Our team has developed operationalized workflows for the library and beyond, including a robust evaluation infrastructure for the campus in NUCATS built on a foundation of informatics and data, supporting NIH-funded programs as well as a range of local needs. I am especially excited to define new roles and opportunities for modern biomedical research libraries in an increasingly informatics and data-driven environment.[Shorten text]
