Data Manager

As the data manager at SERC, I... manage the data. This involves data collection, typically through Serckit, though often includes more project-specific software (e.g., Qualtrics, CVENT, DotDigital). I also organize the data, which includes the literal organization of the dataset, typically in excel, and file management such that SERC staff and/or project members are able to access needed files with ease regardless of their level of project involvement. In additional, I analyze both qualitative and quantitative data and generate visualizations for reports and presentations, focusing on clarity and accessibility.

 Some of my recent work has included developing a data management plan for NSF GP-IMPACT: Expanding HBCU Pathways to Geoscience Education and analysis and visualizations of event engagement data, which characterized participants and their project involvement for Advancing Research Impact in Society (ARIS), and analysis and visualizations of student surveys responses (including self-reported gains in specific skills and questions that targeted their experiences in their courses) for Business And Science: Integrated Curriculum for Sustainability (BASICS) and Introducing Geophysics for Urban and Near-surface Applications (IGUaNA).
