Given the interests of this group, I thought that you all might like to know about one the EMBL EBI’s newest members of staff – Jenny Cham, user experience analyst.
Jenny’s role is to gather and analyse information from service users and software developers to improve the style and structure of tools and databases on the web.
Her background is in bioinformatics research and R&D for the pharmaceutical industry. Her most recent work in this area includes development of a web-based tool, ‘MRMaid’, a free online service for MRM (multiple reaction monitoring) transition design. To develop this tool, Jenny bridged a team of expert proteomics practitioners and software developers delivering a new algorithm and set of interfaces and data views. She is looking forward to applying this experience to her new role.
Jenny has prepared a short PDF document to explain a bit more about herself and her background.
She will be involved with the Interfaces interest group, and I am really looking forward to working with her.
