Marine Environmental Data and Information Network Coordinator
15 October 2014
Dr. Clare Postlethwaite has been appointed coordinator of the Marine Environmental Data and Information Network (MEDIN).
Clare joined MEDIN two years ago as a member of the Core Team with responsibility for metadata and data standards. During this time she has worked with members of the marine community from across the public and private sectors. She believes MEDIN’s goal is to make it easier to share marine data for both data collectors and data users and looks forward to working on ways to achieve this goal.
Clare completed her PhD in Oceanography in 2002 and her background in oceanographic research means that in addition to the data management experience she has acquired since working for MEDIN, she also has experience of generating large marine data sets and the problems associated with reusing other people’s marine data.
MEDIN is a partnership of UK organisations committed to improving access to marine data. Our partners are both public and private sector. MEDIN reports directly to the Marine Science Coordination Committee (MSCC).
