Madeline joined QCIF as a User Experience (UX) Designer in May 2020.  

She works with QCIF’s software and platform developers on projects, such as Galaxy Australia and the new web Apollo service for manual curation of genome annotation.  

She also works on QCIF Members’ web applications enabling researchers to expose their research data, such as TraDIS-vault.

Outside of her QCIF role, Madeline works with the World Bank Data and Evidence for Justice Reform (DE JURE) program. DE JURE aims to harness the potential of recent changes in data availability to establish a global data infrastructure for the justice sector, and through rigorous analysis and experimentation, expand the evidence base on the economics of justice reform. 

She is currently studying a Postgraduate Certificate in Interaction Design at UQ and has a Bachelor of Business (Economics) from the Queensland University of Technology (QUT).
