Dr Merce Crosas
Research Data Officer with the Office of Vice Provost for Research, Harvard University

My career journey has included research in astrophysics, design of software for astronomical observations, development of learning and data management systems for education and biotechnologies, and now creating applications and systems for research data sharing and analysis, applied to all research fields. What am I currently interested in? Open science to facilitate access and reuse of research data and code while preserving privacy, build software to enhance the quality and productivity of scientific outcomes, improve research data management, and establish multidisciplinary collaborations with the aid of technology and a human touch.
