Hi Cindy,

Grateful to Alice and Matt for including me on this discussion

I think this is a good opportunity for me to develop skills / experience in both sharepoint and information architecture.

I won’t call myself an expert – but I have basic familiarity with Sharepoint as a collaboration / document management hub, and I’m comfortable in “content management system” environments.

I also have some training / experience in Information Architecture and User Experience (UX) testing – both are definitely applicable to this project.

I thought Alice’s suggestions were excellent, and will be happy to assist in pursuing the objectives she identified as my time allows.

I believe the ORISE fellowship also involves a “show and tell” at the end of the appointment – in Washington D.C. with other ORISE fellows. Alice’s SMT project w/ Sharepoint might be a good candidate for a poster / set of “best practices” for developing sharepoint as an R&D collaboration resource.

Would also love to publish a publication, guide, or other documentation related to this project – I do recognize the short timeline to produce and time priorities in supporting Tiffany’s production schedule. The timeline on Matt and Alice’s project may be clearer after the Wednesday meeting.

Just wanted to say I see some opportunities here – will defer to your experience in project management re: appropriating my time.

Prior, I worked for four years as a content lead and biodiversity scientist with the U.S. Geological Survey's Biodiversity Informatics Program. Building on my work experience in biodiversity and environmental informatics, my work with DataONE focused on exploring the nature of scientific collaborations necessary for scientific inquiry. I also conducted research concerning user experience and usability, and assisted in development of member nodes with an emphasis on spatial data and infrastructure. I assisted with research designed to understand sociocultural issues within collaborative research communities. Through August 1, 2014, I was based at the Center for Information and Communication Studies at the University of Tennessee School of Information Science in Knoxville, Tennessee.
