Collaboration Area: Data Preservation and Stewardship

Hi all! My name is Jamie Collins and I am a very recent recipient of a Ph.D. in marine chemistry from the MIT/Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution Joint Program in Oceanography. In April, I will be moving to Seattle to begin a Moore/Sloan Data Science and Washington Research Foundation Innovation in Data Science Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Washington. At UW, I’ll be working with collaborators in several different departments to develop new “big data” analysis methods for making sense of the hundreds of thousands of different small molecules that can be found in each drop of seawater.

I will be the student fellow for the data preservation and stewardship cluster, where I look forward to learning about – and helping develop – policies and best practices for archiving, maintaining, and making available (to researchers and the public) data from all areas of the earth sciences.
