I’m a Taiwanese-American immigrant with a background in Biochemistry and Data Science and now making an impact at Invitae as a Data Scientist Tech Lead Manager. Invitae is a genetic testing company currently tackling the challenge of making mainstream healthcare more data-driven by incorporating routine genetic testing. I also co-Lead the Women in Tech Employee Resource Group and as part of that role, I develop programs and elevate resources to support groups that are traditionally underrepresented in STEM roles. My work in the ERG also includes making STEM and STEM-adjacent roles more visible and attainable to youth from underrepresented backgrounds and designing pathways for people to transition to more technical roles at Invitae. In addition, I’ve also been involved in various LGBT communities including some time working with ClexaCon as their App Developer and Data Scientist. I’m passionate about bringing awareness to diversity and inclusion in the workplace and believe firmly that we can only benefit from broadening and acknowledging the value of differences in perspectives that stem from differences in ethnic and gender identity, financial status, mental state, upbringing, career trajectories, and other evolutionary and environmental factors.
