ocean informatics, information systems usage for oceanographic research with specific focus on: database design, data management, online data systems, development of marine ontology, marine metadata standards and the use of information technology to facilitate the process by which ocean science data and information become knowledge

Research Statement

I am currently an Information Systems Specialist in the Department of Marine Chemistry and Geochemistry, and my research interests lie at the intersection of computer and information science and oceanography, the field of Ocean Informatics.  I am a co-PI for the NSF OCE and PLR funded Biological and Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office (BCO DMO, http://bco-dmo.org/), Lead PI at WHOI for the Rolling Deck to Repository (R2R) project (http://www.rvdata.us), Lead PI at WHOI for the NSF EarthCube funded OceanLink and GeoLink projects (http://earthcube.org/group/geolink) and one of the US partners in the Ocean Data Interoperability Platform (ODIP) project (http://odip.org). I also provide continuing support for the U.S. JGOFS database (http://usjgofs.whoi.edu/jg/dir/jgofs/). I was elected in 2015 to a two-year term as co-chair of the International Oceanographc Data and Information Exchange (IODE, http://iode.org) of the UNESCO IOC.
