Research Activities I am currently an Information Systems Specialist in the Department of Marine Chemistry and Geochemistry. During my time at WHOI, I have participated in 18 research cruises, but my current research interests are in the field of Ocean Informatics which is the intersection of computer and information science and oceanography. 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/).
