The Carpentries
Executive Director
Davis, California, United States
Dr. Teal is the Executive Director of The Carpentries and a co-founder of Data Carpentry. After completing her PhD in Computation and Neural Systems at California Institute of Technology, her work as an NSF Postdoctoral Fellow focused on bioinformatics approaches to metagenomics and microbial community analysis. Then as an Assistant Professor of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics at Michigan State University she continued this work and developed training in bioinformatics and high performance computing. Through these training efforts, she saw that effective data skills are now foundational for research and the need for data training to scale along with data production. She co-founded Data Carpentry to develop and scale this training and Data Carpentry has now joined with Software Carpentry to form The Carpentries and more broadly meet training and community needs. She is involved in the open source software and reproducible research communities, including as an Editor at the Journal for Open Source Software.
