NWFSC Monster Seminar Jam: Amanda Tan
This seminar is part of the Northwest Fisheries Science Center's Monster Seminar Jam series.
Amanda Tan, Ph.D. (University of Washington) is presenting a talk, "Building pathways for open and reproducible research in earth science." The talk will be moderated by Eric Ward (Northwest Fisheries Science Center).
Computational and data science skills have become essential in accelerating the scientific discovery process in Earth Sciences. There exists a need within the community to transition from currently siloed approaches into more collaborative and inclusive practices that better enable transformative science. This talk will explore several avenues that the eScience Institute at the University of Washington has utilized to expedite the adoption of data science methodologies and computational tools for data-intensive research. I will expand on the hackweek model, lessons learned from successfully facilitating virtual meetings and workshops as well as various pathways to encourage the adoption of open and reproducible science within the Earth Science community.
Amanda Tan is a data scientist with the eScience Institute. She primarily helps researchers migrate their work to the cloud and facilitates strategies for open data access, effective data visualization and collaborative cloud-based tools. Amanda received her Ph.D. in Civil and Environmental Engineering from the University of Washington and currently works on developing community-based tools for utilizing large-scale satellite imagery. She has co-organized hackweeks across different domains and works closely with various earth science organizations on open science education and outreach.
