Aside from my role as Director of Informatics at Duke University's Center for Genomic and Computational Biology (GCB), I am a PI for the NSF-funded project on creating a model and standard for phyloreferencing (http://phyloref.org), and I am a co-PI of the (also NSF-funded) Phenoscape project (http://phenoscape.org) on ontological annotation of evolutionary phenotype observations. I am a co-founder and current Board of Directors member of Data Carpentry (http://datacarpentry.org), and I was part of the founding team for Dryad (http://datadryad.org), a digital repository for data supporting scientific publications. I have also served in the leadership of the Open Bioinformatics Foundation (OBF) since its inception in 2001.
Before joining Duke's 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, including the NESCent's hackathon program and Google Summer of Code™ (GSoC) participation.
