Vanderbilt University, Digital Scholarship and Communications
Data Science and Data Curation Specialist

In addition to my current work at the Vanderbilt Libraries, I'm a former 30 year science educator. I'm an active participant in Biodiversity Information Standards (also known as TDWG), where I serve as chair of the Technical Architecture Group and on the Executive Committee. I've been the the lead author of several TDWG standards documents, including the Darwin Core RDF Guide and the TDWG Standards Documentation Specification, which was focused on how to express standards metadata as Linked Data. Another of my side projects was developing the Bioimages image database (http://bioimages.vanderbilt.edu), which has metadata fully expressed as RDF and available via SPARQL endpoint. My interest in discovering practical ways to use Linked Data has sparked my interest in Wikidata. Recent Wikidata projects include developing the VanderBot script (http://vanderbi.lt/vanderbot) and uploading metadata for all 6884 items in the Vanderbilt Fine Arts Gallery to Wikidata (https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:WikiProject_Vanderbilt_Fine_Arts_Gallery).
