Empowering Education and Behavioral Health with Innovative Technology for Government, Military, Philanthropy, Startups, and Nonprofits
I am passionate about driving positive change through innovation. I have an extensive track record of developing multi-disciplinary teams to leverage the latest technologies to drive social impact. I have developed programs at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and Office of Naval Research (ONR) and have helped inform innovation strategies for major philanthropies. I was Executive Director for STEM Initiatives during the Obama Administration and Chief Science Officer at the American Psychological Association.
My vision is to create a world where evidence-based technology solutions are leveraged for social good. I believe that new approaches to innovation are the key to solving some of the world's most pressing social challenges, and I am committed to driving positive change.
Emerging technologies have the power to close social disparities or widen them, so we must look to evidence-based and intentional design and development.
