We are very pleased to announce Marta Teperek from TU Delft, the Netherlands, as one of the keynote speakers at CarpentryConnect Manchester 2019. Her talk “Better data (and code!) Help!...” will address issues around data management in research.
Marta Teperek did a PhD in molecular biology at the University of Cambridge. Having first-hand experience of problems that researchers face on a day-to-day basis, with the journals’ impact factor, and not the quality of the research process, dictating the future of their academic career, Marta decided to get professionally involved in advocating for Open Research and for better transparency in science. In 2015 she joined the University of Cambridge and led the creation and development of the Research Data Management Facility, supporting researchers at the University of Cambridge in good management and sharing of research data. While at Cambridge, Marta initiated and oversaw the Data Champions programme and the Open Research Pilot. In August 2017, Marta moved to TU Delft in Netherlands, where she leads the Data Stewardship project. Marta serves on the Editorial Board of the Data Science Journal and she is the Co-Chair of the Research Data Alliance Libraries for Research Data Interest Group.
