Dr. Danielle Robinson will present "A Vision for Decentralized Data Preservation Across a Network of Libraries and Trusted Institutions" and facilitate a discussion with library and research faculty about data preservation workflows and how a decentralized model would work in their practice.
Dr. Robinson is an open science advocate who believes in the power of inclusive open communities. She serves as Co-Executive Director at Code for Science & Society where she works to support open source software projects including the Dat project, Stencila, and ScienceFair. Her experiences as a researcher motivated her to apply the philosophy of open source software development to scientific research to improve efficiency and research reproducibility — and to work for an inclusive future for science and scholarship. Dr. Robinson was a 2016-2017 Mozilla Fellow for Science, received my PhD in Neuroscience from Oregon Health and Science University in 2017, and was awarded a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship in 2012. Her current work includes exploring how Dat-based p2p infrastructure can improve data preservation, research collaboration, and public access to research data. Work on a pilot is now underway, announced on the Dat Project Blog as well as on California Digital Library’s blog and the Internet Archive’s blog.
