I am an Information Systems professional with over thirty years of experience integrating information systems technology with oceanographic research. I have participated in 18 ocean research cruises. All of my current research is related to improving and enhancing data management activities throughout the full research data life cycle, from 'proposal through preservation'. A particular focus is using semantics to connect resources to improve discovery, facilitate interoperability and ultimately make ocean science research data, especially data acquired during research cruises, more accessible to the research community.
