Katie Heineman

As a data scientist for CPC, I facilitate data sharing and collaborative research in our network of world class plant conservationists. I develop and maintain the CPC National Collection Database, the California Plant Rescue Database, and the suite of tools in the CPC participating institution portal. As a scientist for San Diego Zoo, I support the conservation programs of Plant Conservation Division by perform data analysis and creating data collection and management workflows. Finally, I am the project manager for the web development of Plant Nucleus - so you can contact me with any suggestions, compliments, or grievances (kheineman@saveplants.org).

I look forward to answering question about: R programming, bioinformatics, data sharing, plant ecology. In a previous life, I did my graduate thesis on nutrient cycling in a Panamian montane forests, so I'm always up for a good phosphorus chat. I'm not a great botantist, but my current fave family is Malvaceae: hibiscus is the only thing my tortoise will eat, and the apricot mallow in my yard is glorious.
