Erin works at the intersection of community informatics, Earth science and non-profit management. Over the last 10+ years, she has honed an eclectic skill set both technical and managerial, creating communities and programs with lasting impact around science, data, and technology. She is passionate about fostering innovation through collaboration across diverse nodes. After serving as the Executive Director for the Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) from 2014-2020 she co-founded Metadata Game Changers, with co-founder, Dr. Ted Habermann, to champion open science and good data management. In this position, she facilitates collaboration, builds communities and coaches Earth science technology practitioners and researchers to expedite progress toward data interoperability.

With her collaborators, she is co-developing and understanding knowledge infrastructures for Earth and environmental science applications to: (1) support field station researchers with better data management in the FAIR Island Project and (2) aide researchers using NASA Earth science data as they move analysis workflows to the Cloud in the NASA-Openscapes Project. Erin is passionate about building and supporting collaborative communities. She received a master’s degree in Environmental Engineering from Washington University in St. Louis in 2010 and focused on the integration of distributed datasets to characterize long-term transport of smoke and dust. Erin is pursuing a Ph.D. in Information Science based on these research activities at University of Colorado, Boulder.
