Marine Data Manager
As a Scientific Data Manager at the UK Polar Data Centre at BAS, I focus on management, publication, archiving and integration of marine UK-funded research data collected in Antarctic and Arctic polar regions. In my role I manage biological, chemical and physical oceanography data generated during marine surveys from UK-funded polar programmes, BAS research vessels and the BAS science programmes Pelagic Ecosystems, Polar Oceans and marine aspects of Biodiversity, Evolution and Adaptation. I act as a co-chair of the Southern Ocean Observing System (SOOS) Data Management Sub-Committee and BAS data liaison for the British Oceanographic Data Centre (BODC) and represent the UK Polar Data Centre at two working groups of the Research Data Alliance.
