NASEM Workshop – Better Science for Future Us
Julie Lowndes and I presented an invited talk “Better Science for Future Us” virtually at the 2021 NASEM joint Mapping Sciences Committee and the Geographical Sciences Committee Workshop (recording), Accelerating the Analysis of Geographic Change, in a session “Data...
This bird was inspired by a girl that Pat was working on. Pat was using tissue transfer to add Matisse cuttings to the dress of the girl. In this piece, the bird is carved from floral foam. Clay shay is used on the body and the head. Matisse cutting shapes are glued...
FAIR Island: Networked, Machine-Actionable DMPs for Open Science
In August 2021, the FAIR Island Team gave a talk for the RDA-US Webinar series, highlighting our work with Machine Actionable Data Management Plans (DMPs). The full description and recording can be found on the RDA-US website.
AGU 2020 – Leptoukh Lecture
In 2020, I had the distinct honor of being awarded the AGU Leptoukh Lecturer. I gave a recorded talk at the 2020 Fall AGU meeting, which is viewable on AGU's website here. Talk title: "Putting Data to Work: Moving science forward together beyond where we thought...
I am the Research Data Management Advisor for the FAIR Island Project. The FAIR Island Project supports working research stations, in French Polynesia initially, to better manage data collected by diverse research teams. Website: https://fairisland.org/
ESIP – The Earth Science Information Partners
In 2007, I went to my first ESIP Summer Meeting. It was in Madison, WI. I was in graduate school at Washington University in St. Louis. In my role as a graduate student I supported the ESIP Air Quality cluster, which was co-led at the time by my advisor, Dr. Rudy...
This cat was the first piece I created with Pat Chapman during a workshop. When I revisted it, I was sorry I painted it. As Ted says, art is learning.
Chasing Gold Stars
Chasing Gold Stars is sculpted from floral foam, covered in clay shay and painted with acryclic paint. The gold stars have slowly fallen off of the ears - a reminder that gold stars aren't permanent.
I speak on a variety of topics including data management across the project lifecycle and supporting research teams as they transition to more resilient data practices.
I co-own Metadata Game Changers LLC with my husband, Ted Habermann. I am currently leading two projects:
- NASA Openscapes in collaboration with Julie Lowndes, UCSB
- FAIR Island Project
I am a 2nd year Ph.D. student in Information Science at CU Boulder. I am advised by Dr. Leysia Palen.
