Marie Vendettuoli

I am currently a Senior Statistical Programmer at the Statistical Center for HIV/AIDS Research and Prevention (SCHARP) at Fred Hutch.

From 2010 - 2019 I was a Statistical Programmer at the Center for Veterinary Biologics, USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS).

In 2013, I received a dual-major PhD in the interdisciplinary programs of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (BCB) and Human Computer Interaction (HCI) from Iowa State University.

My undergraduate education was in Biochemistry and Math. Prior to grad school, I worked for five (5) years at Bloodworks NW (previously Puget Sound Blood Center), testing donor blood products in a cGMP, FDA-regulated environment.

My main interest is developing analytical systems that help scientists and researchers do their job more effectively. I primarily program in R, but routinely use python, java, html/css, LaTeX and VBA to create accessible working environments.

I am also interested in leveraging interactive visualization for the reduction of cognitive load during exploratory analysis.
