I reduce lead times for data-driven insights.
My expertise is in data discovery, integration, and dissemination. My focus is on amplifying the capacity of researchers to perform data-intensive science.
Typical client outcomes
Integration of heterogeneous data sets and capabilities.
Improved public (or cross-team) discoverability of published data.
Appropriate interfaces for domain specialists.
Trust in data, with provenance made visible.
Granular control of data-plus-interface access.
Amplified utility of data via interactive, browser-based tools.
Automated credentialing that expands capacity for data collaboration.
Trained and empowered staff, collaborators, and user communities.
“The Project grew from a few thousand users to over 100,000 with an onslaught of data requests and increased demand. Without Donny’s commitment, knowledge and team working skills, we could not have grown to this size and gained international recognition.”
— Kristin Persson, Director @ Materials Project
“Donny brought an effective, solution-focused attitude to problem solving, striking a smart balance between pragmatic coding to get us results today while also planning long-term architectural choices for tomorrow.”
— Matthew Horton, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab
“Donny Winston is among the most effective individuals I’ve worked with in my experience working in academia, government, and industry. He is diligent, personable, and has a knack for the kind of strategic thinking that will enable anyone working with him to achieve their goals with just the right level of resources.”
— Industrial Research Scientist
“Donny is one of the most effective communicators I know. He made sure the team understood why and how his solutions were efficient and forward-looking, providing confidence in our progress.”
— Materials Research Scientist
“I approached Donny to find a solution for a centralized system managing database credentials for our group. He delivered a well-rounded open-source python package including the necessary infrastructure which has ever since saved us valuable time on a daily basis. Particularly outstanding was his patience to discuss difficult technical details until we found a common denominator.”
