Ms Ruth Duerr Chair
As a data scientist/engineer , Ruth Duerr has been interested in four fields of inquiry: science data management, digital archives management, records management, and digital library science. All four fields are developing separately, yet share similar problem spaces – how to make available and preserve digital data and information over time. Her research interests involve nearly all aspects of data stewardship. She currently is a PI and/or Project Manager for several ongoing and recent data management and cyberinfrastructure projects funded by NSF, NASA and NOAA.
