Research Statement

I am currently an Information Systems Associate III in the Department of Marine Chemistry and Geochemistry, a co-PI for the Biological and Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office (BCO DMO, URL: http://bco-dmo.org/) and manager of the Ocean Carbon and Biogeochemistry Data Management Office (OCB DMO, URL: http://ocb.whoi.edu/). I also provide continuing support for the U.S. JGOFS database (http://usjgofs.whoi.edu/jg/dir/jgofs/). My research interests lie at the intersection of computer and information science and oceanography, the field of Ocean Informatics.
