She has 18 years of experience implementing U.S. government–funded programs domestically and internationally. In her current role, she conducts impact assessments of R&D initiatives for government agencies, including the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, and other organizations and institutions like the National Academies of Sciences, the ALS Association, and the University of Missouri-Columbia.

Before moving to Missouri in 2020, she was Deputy Chief of Party of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Science, Technology, Research and Innovation for Development program in the Philippines.

Prior to RTI, Rossana was a manager and later a board member of El Centro Hispano, the largest grassroots organization serving the Latinx population in North Carolina.
