Software and Data Carpentry
Community Development Lead
Brisbane, Australia
I am the Community Development Lead for Software and Data Carpentry. I love building communities, helping people connect, and fostering skills. A former repository manager and provider of research cloud services, I am a certified Software Carpentry and Data Carpentry instructor and instructor trainer. I organised the 2016 and 2017 Brisbane Research Bazaar festivals, three-day events that teach digital skills to graduate students and early career researchers. In 2016 and 2017, I coordinated the two-day hackathons that updated and extended Library Carpentry lessons. In 2016, I started Hacky Hour, a weekly research IT advice session at The University of Queensland.
