As Associate Director for Special Projects at Caltech, I'm responsible for managing large scale, cross-functional business system projects and the annual institute year-end tax reporting (W-2, 1099 etc) run on Oracle eBS and other vendor solutions. My recent projects include OBIEE implementation, AWS migration and DB 19c upgrade, Oracle R12 upgrade, extending Oracle eBusiness Suite application to campus users, and Advance implementation (incl. integration with Oracle eBS Financials and HRMS). My current focus is Oracle 12.2 Upgrade. In addition to the above projects, I am also playing a leadership role in the system analyst group.

Caltech’s Oracle footprint includes eBusiness Suite for financials, grants, HRMS and OBIEE. I have 25 years’ experience working with Oracle’s eBusiness Suite applications, and my breadth of experience covers all aspects of project implementations and upgrades, project budget and resource management, vendor relationships, and ongoing day to day operational support and maintenance. 

I started working with Oracle applications as a functional consultant in 1996 and completed full cycle Oracle eBS implementation at the companies such as Disney Consumer Prodcuand Vodafone. I left Deloitte Consulting to join Caltech in 2002, and I quickly demonstrated the ability to grasp business processes in various areas, piece together the puzzle, and find the system options to support the processes.

I have been active on HEUG since 2006. I served on HEUG Grants and Contract Product Advisory Group (PAG), eBS Product Advisory Group (PAG) and, later on, HEUG board. I have been attending and presenting at almost every Alliance since 2007. Look forward to meeting in future Alliance!
