Vivien Bonazzi, a more than two-decade bioinformatics veteran and former senior adviser at the National Institutes of Health, has been appointed a managing director within the government and public services practice of Deloitte.
She will also serve as chief biomedical data scientist of Deloitte's consulting business and work with federal clients to help them adopt data science approaches, technology platforms and cyber systems, the company said Wednesday.
Bonazzi previously advised the NIH Office of Director on data science matters and helped manage the agency’s Data Commons program. Her responsibilities included management of NIH’s external partnerships and deployment of new technology to facilitate the exchange, analysis and discovery of biomedical information.
She also worked as a program director at the National Institute for Genome Research prior to her most recent capacity.
Kevin Brault, principal and federal health care leader of Deloitte, said Bonazzi brings extensive technical experience as the company aims to deepen its expertise in the biomedical research and data science areas.
Earlier in her career, Bonazzi worked at Booz Allen Hamilton (NYSE: BAH) as senior associate for global health and held director roles at biotechnology companies Invitrogen and Celera Genomics.
