After serving as the Executive Director for the Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) from 2014-2020, I co-founded Metadata Game Changers, with co-founder, Dr. Ted Habermann, to champion open science and good data management. In this position, I facilitate collaboration, build communities and coach Open science leaders to expedite progress toward data interoperability.
With my collaborators, I am developing and understanding information infrastructures for Earth and environmental science applications to: (1) support field station researchers with better data management in the FAIR Island Project and (2) aide researchers using NASA Earth science data as they move analysis workflows to the Cloud in the NASA-Openscapes Project.
I am passionate about building and supporting collaborative communities. I received a M.Sc. degree in Environmental Engineering from Washington University in St. Louis in 2010 and focused on the integration of distributed datasets to characterize long-term transport of smoke and dust. I am pursuing a Ph.D. in Information Science based on these research activities at University of Colorado, Boulder in the Information Science department.
