Marie Vendettuoli

I am currently a Data Scientist at Bonneville Power Administration, Department of Energy

From 2019 - 2023 I was a Senior Statistical Programmer and Assistant Manager 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 and communities of practice to 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.
