The BAS Archives Service manages data and records from the 1940s to the present and is a scientific and historical resource available to BAS staff and members of the public. I managed the team and resources and led on data recovery projects to encourage the re-use of archived scientific data.

Data Analyst - Antarctic Environmental Data Centre (now Polar Data Centre)

From July 2004 until July 2005 I conducted a survey of the scientific data holdings at BAS and from Sept 2005 until Dec 2006 I worked to identify data collected as part of the Antarctic Funding Initiative.

I managed all the data for a European grassland biodiversity experiment called BIODEPTH, compiling data from eight countries and making data available to researchers. I also assisted with the harvests to collect data.

I maintained and responded to enquiries about the worlds largest compilation of population times series data - the Global Population Dynamics Database (GPDD).

I designed and maintained the centre's (old) web site, coordinated the International Academic Visitor Programme, maintained a database of CPB publications and took part in many outreach events such as a Royal Society Summer Exhibition stand and the National Science Week activities.

In 2001 I won a BA (British Association for the Advancement of Science) Media Fellowship to work with the BBC Science Interactive group and researched and designed some of the fossilisation pages of the Walking with Beasts website.
