Margaret O'Brien's portrait
Specialist, Marine Science Institute

I am currently the information manager for the Santa Barbara Coastal Long Term Ecological Research project (SBC LTER). I coordinate and implement most aspects of data exchange and publication within and outside the group. This includes managing user accounts and services, designing databases, websites and applications; and working with scientists and their staff to plan and publish data products. I also collaborate with the Ecoinformatcs Program at MSI, and with the Moorea Coral Reef LTER on projects related to data integration and use. Prior to coming to MSI, I worked with the Bermuda Bio-Optics project at the Earth Reearch Institute, also at UCSB.
