Tasks performed

I provide technical support for Norwegian researchers and students, teaching at workshops and courses on biodiversity informatics and open data publication. Other tasks include maintaining and updating the online home page for  GBIF Norway  and contributing to the development of international solutions for open publication of primary biodiversity information. 


I worked in a similar role for the South African National Biodiversity Institute at Kirstenbosch, Cape Town. I have an MSc in Conservation Biology from the University of Cape Town.
