February 10, 2016

Please join us in welcoming Dr. Francesca Gordon, who recently accepted an offer to join the Voinovich School as an applied research professor. She has impressive experience with data and data visualization, and will be an important resource to the Planning, Evaluation, Education and Research (PEER) team, TechGROWTH Ohio and other growing Voinovich School health and social innovation partnerships across the University.

Gordon is a data scientist and has previously worked at Connance, Inc. as a senior data scientist and at Excelimmune, Inc. as a research scientist. She also has held postdoctoral fellowships at Tufts Medical Center and Massachusetts General Hospital. At Connance, Inc., Gordon helped develop a tool to identify individuals likely to have social barriers to healthcare access in order to help clients develop appropriate intervention strategies.

Gordon received a B.A. in biology from Oberlin College and a Ph.D. in molecular and cellular biology from Baylor College of Medicine in June 2007.

We look forward to Dr. Gordon’s leadership and participation in building our data science, innovation and research capacity in important social areas at both the School and Ohio University, and building the national reputation of the Voinovich School in this area.
