    Collapse Overview
    Angela is a seasoned professional in the realm of academic research, with a general interest in facilitating scientific revelations. Her experience spans laboratory, clinical, and administrative settings. She obtained her PhD in neuroscience from UCLA, and completed postdoctoral work at UCSF in the area of neuroimaging, using machine learning analytical methods.

    As a Program Manager at UCSF’s Clinical and Translational Science Institute, she led Open Data efforts by helping to establish UC DataShare, and worked to facilitate several strategic initiatives including establishment of a multi-institution clinical trials networks, and development of infrastructure and processes that enhance research programs.

    She has a passion for science communication, advocacy, and public outreach - serving as an outreach coordinator for the UCLA Brain Research Institute, contributing editor for UCSF (CTSI & BCHSI) communications, and chief editor of 'The Mental Note' newsletter.

    She has filled many roles throughout her career, and as Chief Operating Officer for BCHSI, she strives to support the enterprise of Computational Health Sciences at the University.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
