I am currently working as a Data Scientist at the British Oceanographic Data Centre in Liverpool, UK.

My work includes expanding and improving a dictionary of oceanographic terms and variables that are used to describe a diverse array of chemical, biological and physical data collected at locations all around the world.

The dictionary is moving in the direction of using a controlled vocabulary to provide a semantic structure to the information that is represented. The aim of this is to improve knowledge distribution throughout the oceanographic (and wider) community.
