Tracy Teal has been working with open source communities as a developer, instructor and project leader throughout her career. As a PhD student at Caltech and then as an Assistant Professor in bioinformatics at Michigan State University, she saw that the bottleneck to discovery was no longer data production, but the skills and perspective to work with data. She went on to co-found Data Carpentry to scale data training along with data production and then became Executive Director of The Carpentries, continuing to develop open curriculum and an inclusive instructor community. She is currently the Open Source Program Director at Posit where she is passionate about supporting open source developers and expanding access to tools that help people use data to answer the questions that are important to them.
