I am working at the Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn – in the Institute of Geodesy and Geoinformation (IGG) – Work Group Information Management.
I am educated as B.Sc. Biology, M.Sc. Bioinformatics and I am currently studying for a PhD in Agricultural Sciences.
My areas of expertise are mainly field robotics and related sensor data, genetic data (“omics” data) and general field data.
How did I get into data management?
During my PhD studies, I first documented mainly my own research data. Afterwards, I additionally expanded my knowledge in data management as a data steward in the Cluster of Excellence PhenoRob at the University of Bonn.
What does good data management mean to me?
… that data are annotated in such a way that a third person can assess them only on the basis of the description. Furthermore, the data should also be findable at appropriate places.
