Ms. Cj Rieser Ph.D. is a senior member of the IEEE women in engineering and medical communities. As a Principal Engineer in MITRE Labs and a Research Faculty in the UVA School of Medicine Department of Public Health Sciences, she envisioned, established, and directs the MITRE @ University of Virginia (UVA) Health Partnership that hosts integrative engineering and medical initiatives. The partnership enables collaboration on complex data environments, smart connected mobile telehealth systems, and shared clinical analytics capabilities to improve care, safety, and quality of life. Her translational research & teaching uses creativity as a catalyst to incubate cognitive analytics, cyber-physical systems, human learning, and other emerging technologies. In addition, Cj serves on IEEE’s global medical technology standards steering committee and facilitates a working group of thought leaders spanning government, academia, as well as industry with interests in developing standards for sharing analytics and portable data models. Dr. Rieser’s doctoral research as a National Science Foundation (NSF) Fellow was supported by the Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT) program at Virginia Tech focused on advanced networking. She directs engineering services and research in partnership with her UVA Health colleagues that include managing engineering activities, mentoring researchers, publishing innovative findings, and transitioning emerging medical technologies into use.
