Shaun de Witt
RDA EU Ambassador for High energy physics/ Fusion
"I have been working in the field of data management since the 1980's. During this time I have had the pleasure of working in a number of fields including astronomy, remote sensing, meteorology, climatology and particle physics. I have also been involved in European projects related to RDM including EUDAT and am currently engaged with the European Open Science Cloud Initiative. My main interests lie around metadata standards and ontologies, long term data and information preservation, and provenance as key for the exploitation of todays results by researchers in the future, and essential to building trust in data."
