Spotlight: Dr. Joanna Chan, Data Scientist, National Technical Information Service (NTIS)
I am a data scientist with Commerce’s National Technical Information Service (NTIS) which delivers innovative, data science services and technologies to the federal government through partnerships with industry, universities and non-profits. I find it fascinating to explore data, gain new insights, and collaborate with our talented and dedicated federal colleagues (for whom I’m pleased to recognize during Public Service Recognition Week). A lot of synergy is created by forming partnerships between the public and private sectors, and I see a lot of transformative possibilities across the government landscape. I feel it is very rewarding to help others consider how emerging data science capabilities can benefit mission outcomes, taxpayers’ investments, and ultimately, the American public.
Delivering Data Innovation – A Partnership Model That’s Working
We are reminded almost daily of the importance of Commerce’s data for our nation’s people, businesses, and economy. NOAA’s satellite and weather data are helping individual Americans and businesses plan future activity. Survey data disseminated by the U.S. Census Bureau are empowering businesses and communities to make evidence-based decisions. BEA’s economic indicators, which include the GDP, provide a broader economic perspective and inform world markets.
