Welcome to the Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) 2018 Summer Meeting! The 2018 theme is Realizing the Socioeconomic Value of Data. The theme is based on one of the goals in the 2015 - 2020 ESIP Strategic Plan, which provides a framework for ESIP’s activities over the next three years.

All Presentations are being added to a Google Folder temporarily and then will be moved to FigShare and linked to the sessions here.

Data Scientist

My work focuses on the combination of semantics, bioinformatics, and data analysis in aid of meaningfully mobilising ecological data and detecting structure in this complex and plastic context.

See my ORCID for more:

I apply omics-focused bioinformatics and multivariate statistics (see mb3is.megx.net/gustame) to the diverse data sets derived from microbial ecology investigations. I also develop resources to assist microbial ecologists in learning and effectively using these techniques.

Concurrently, I research environmental semantics and lead the Environment Ontology (ENVO; www.environmentontology.org) in support of semantically consistent data standardisation across and beyond the life sciences. I am also co-leading the Sustainable Development Goals Interface Ontology (SDGIO; github.com/SDG-InterfaceOntology/sdgio) to better link scientific output to societal goals.

My past training in biochemistry, cell biology, and marine microbiology grounds my current in silico work in biological knowledge.
