We are proud to announce that Danielle Robinson, a PhD candidate in the Neuroscience Graduate Program, has been awarded a 2016 Mozilla Fellowship for Science.
This highly competitive program supports the work of early career researchers who want influence the future of open scientific communication and data sharing within their communities.
The Fellows are chosen for their demonstrated commitment to the change Mozilla is working to effect. Already a student leader in this area, Danielle has championed openness and collaboration as a co-organizer of Open Insight PDX and Science Hack Day Portland. She is also a founding member of Women in Science Portland.
Throughout her fellowship year, Danielle will receive support from Mozilla to hone her skills, lead outreach initiatives, and develop local resources around open source, data sharing, and open science policy and licensing. Working from the OHSU Library, Danielle will be co-mentored by Allison Fryer, PhD, Associate Dean of Graduate Studies, and Robin Champieux, MLIS, Scholarly Communication Librarian, representing a collaborative effort between the School of Medicine and the OHSU Library to help Danielle realize her goals, and leverage the benefits of the Mozilla Fellowships for Science program for the larger OHSU community.
The support Danielle will receive from the Fellowship, the OHSU School of Medicine, and the OHSU Library will build upon existing efforts to advocate for and realize the expertise and workflows that are integral to the future of research and discovery.
We are excited that Danielle will be able to grow her work as a thoughtful and passionate advocate for open science, collaborating with OHSU faculty, students, and administrators to support the knowledge and practices that are key to the creation and communication of impactful research.
