Dr Elvina Gountouna

Interests How research data management (RDM) principles can be effectively applied and maintained when working with large and complex datasets. How to make RDM as transparent and painless as possible. How to deliver hands-on training in a way that is…

Saskia Lawson-Tovey

Interests My interests are in electronic clinical data collection (in particular, REDCap) and data pseudonymisation and harmonisation. I am interested in improving training in database design and set-up, as well as data quality and harmonisation in clinical research, and increasing…

Dr Rob Ewing

Interests Proteomics; multi-omics data integration; molecular networks My work I am an Associate Professor in Computational and Molecular Systems Biology in the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Southampton. My training interests are in introducing research students to…

Dr Laura Cooper

Interests I am interesting in the management of imaging data, particularly light microscopy imaging. I am interesting in training microscopists and biologist to make their images and the associated metadata FAIR. My work I am part of the Computing and…

Dr Korneel Hens

Interests My expertise includes transcriptomics, genomics and gene regulatory networks. These are data intensive research areas that require profound knowledge about data management. I would like to develop data management courses for these types of data and train researchers (Masters,…

Katarzyna Kamieniecka

Interests Developing and Providing workshops to introduce “FAIR” principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) in computational tools, pipelines and case studies to demonstrate how they can be used to help promote reproducibility when performing bioinformatic analyses. My work I am a…

Dr Emma Karoune

Interests I am interested in promoting a more inclusive research culture by embracing an open research approach in all of my work and advocating for this approach to others. Therefore, I want to enable other researchers to fill the skills…

Annabel Cansdale

Interests Pipeline development and workflow management (Snakemake etc.) Containerisation especially conda Metagenomics and the handling of large genomic datasets (+ handling of microbial datasets) The handling of Nanopore sequencing data Target audience is especially PhD/ECRs to attempt to integrate FAIR…

Dr Andrew Mason

Interests I work with large public and restricted access datasets in the human and avian omics fields and work closely with wet-lab colleagues to generate new, hypothesis-driven data. My research has benefited a lot from working with these data, but…
