I have over fifteen years experience of working on digital agriculture, mobile extension, web-based products, and research communication services. I manage knowledge services for International Development, and I am Head of Open Data at CABI.
I specialise in data policy, programme management, business development, key account management, research communication and knowledge management, monitoring and evaluation, and mobile services.
Open data – data that is freely available and machine-readable for everyone to use – is a vital resource for improving global food security and human health. The Global Open Data for Agriculture and Nutrition (GODAN) programme has been set up to take pioneering agriculture and nutrition research information and make it openly accessible – together with up-to-date information on soils, weather, land ownership, market prices and similar – to the people who need it most.
