Marcus

I am an employee of the Center for Agricultural Land Research (ZALF) e.V. in M√ľncheberg, where I work in the Research Data Management Working Group.

My specialties are soil data, data analysis and especially digital tools.

How did I get into data management?

While working on the combined analysis of digital data, I started learning about its structures and the importance of describing them.

Finally, this led to a coordination job at the BonaRes repository for soil and agricultural data.

What does good data management mean to me?

For me, it is important to be aware of the cycle of one’s data. That is, are they reliably collected, well described, and can they be reused as they are? The survival of data in future research is the main driver of my work.
