Sarah Ngo

What technology project(s) have you worked on that you are most proud of?

Creating a central repository for one of our community programs in an attempt to get us closer to the holy grail of matching education objectives to patient outcomes.

How has technology helped you achieve a goal within your role or department?

Workflow automation has been a time saver so our staff can dedicate their brainspace to more important matters.

What’s your favorite aspect of your role at UCSF and why?

I enjoy the continuous learning environment, that we are all students in a way and through various opportunities, we have a chance to positively introduce innovations in tech into the health world.

What’s one ‘fun fact’ about you that not many people know?

I won a singing competition when I was 5!

What do you like to do when you’re not at work?

I love crocheting super personalized amigurumi, and crafting projects built upon paper engineering principles.

If you could learn anything what would that be?

How to build a watering and weeding robot to help me maintain my garden! I feel like this is probably already made, but this robot needs to look like Dalek as a tribute to the Dr. Who series.
