Thomer awarded 2016 RDA Data Share Fellowship

June 08, 2016


CIRSS doctoral student Andrea Thomer has been selected as a 2016 Research Data Alliance/US (RDA/US) Data Share Fellow, an early career engagement program. As an RDA Fellow, she will undertake a project to survey the completeness and coverage of existing natural history physical sample databases.

RDA Data Share program's objective is to encourage the adoption of best practices of data sharing established through RDA, and enhance early career engagement with the Alliance. Under the mentorship of RDA/US Advisory Committee members, RDA Data Share Fellows form a cohort, attend RDA Plenaries, participate in RDA’s Working and Interest Groups, and undertake work on their own special projects. The Fellows receive stipends and travel support to attend RDA’s bi-annual plenaries and an orientation event.
