Biographical Sketch

Annette Greiner is a data nerd with particular interest in interaction design and visualization. She came to NERSC upon completion of a Master's in Information Management and Systems from UC Berkeley's School of Information, with a focus on human-computer interaction. Before returning to school, she developed web sites for the Advanced Light Source and the DOE Joint Genome Institute. At NERSC, her duties include wrangling data and developing science gateways of all kinds. At a broader level, she represents the Laboratory to the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and has served on international working groups related to publication and sharing of data. Her interests touch the UC Berkeley campus as well, where she teaches data visualization for the Master's in Information and Data Science (MIDS) program at the School of Information. Annette also holds a B.S. in biomedical science and theater from the University of Michigan.
