Terry Haley, PhD

Terry Haley is a technology leader, data scientist, and educator who empowers and protects businesses through the thoughtful and strategic application of technology, operations, resources, and awareness.

A wearer of many hats, Terry holds the position of Chief Technology and Operating Officer for the IT solutions provider, Just One Technology. As a provider, Just One Technology offers management and strategic consulting, professional services, and security program development. The company mission is to enable businesses to realize their full potential through the optimal integration of security, processes, and computing capabilities.

In his previous role, Terry served as the Director of Research Computing at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, one of the top designated comprehensive cancer centers in the United States. In this role, he provided leadership in technology development in support of two hundred of the top minds and their groups in cancer biology, chemistry, and informatics. In addition to working closely with the research community to provide solutions to expedite results, he also served as an advocate and adviser within the complex interface between clinical and non-clinical research.

While in the director role, Terry also oversaw the modernization of research data management, expansion of IT network capability, the convergence of shadow IT and two high performance compute clusters, and developed the strategic plan for Research IT sustainability and growth for the department; which was implemented by his successor. He implemented the foundations which enabled DFCI cancer researchers to utilize cloud technologies as a service. Last but not at all least, he generally expanded the capabilities of Dana-Farber research staff externally through building relationships with Harvard Medical School’s Research Information Systems, Harvard’s Faculty and Sciences Department, and the Broad Institute’s Research Computing Department.

A well-rounded individual, Terry grew up as a US Navy dependent and has been fortunate to have experienced a multitude of adventures at home and abroad which include the beaches of Florida and Hawaii, hiking and skiing in Seattle, reaching the peak of Mt. Fuji, and drinking coffee in the Plaza Del Sol, Madrid. He has served as a member of the volunteer crew of the Friendship of Salem where he apprenticed in carpentry and tall-ship rigging and sail handling.

Terry is blessed to have married his best friend, and with her have two beautiful children.

Terry attained his BS in Computer Science, entered graduate school and developed a virtual reality (VR) simulation for protein modeling in 2002 at the John C. Stennis Space Center’s VR Laboratory, and subsequently transitioned into Biology, ultimately receiving his PhD in Molecular Genetics.
