I am currently the FAIRsharing Community & Curation Coordinator (https://fairsharing.org). In this role, I am responsible for the coordination of the data and metadata content as well as collaborations within our user community and outreach across all research domains. FAIRsharing is about helping research resources such as databases, data standards, and data policies become more findable. We help connect researchers, policymakers, societies, data stewards, librarians and publishers with the resources they need to help make data FAIR and keep it that way. I have a background in data standardization, ontologies, semantic data and data integration. I received my PhD in semantic data integration at Newcastle University. In the past I have worked for Newcastle University, the University of Manchester, and the European Bioinformatics Institute. I am also an active STEM Ambassador, running STEM sessions and activities for local primary and secondary schools.
