Tina Witcher, Senior Project Associate

Center for Data Reduction and Analysis Support: Data Analysis Support

Tina Witcher is a Senior Project Associate in the Center for Data Reduction and Analysis Support (CDRAS) at the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute (VTTI). She started work at VTTI in 2015 and is currently involved in extraction, preparation, analysis, and export of the SHRP2 Naturalistic Driving Study data.

Prior to working at VTTI, she spent 14 years at Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, NM, where she most recently designed and implemented scenarios to assess algorithm-specific requirement compliance and identify vulnerabilities in satellite ground systems. This entailed maintaining, verifying, and validating large physics-based computer simulation models, performing root-cause analysis for anomalies, and leading major Red Team exercises for end-to-end system testing.

Tina earned her MS in Mathematics, Computer Science, and Computational Logic from Dresden University of Technology in Dresden, Germany in 2000 and her BS in Mathematics and Computer Science from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY in 1999.
