Coastal Carbon Network
Michael is the data coordinator for MarineGEO and the Coastal Carbon Coordination Network, both based out of the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center in Edgewater, MD. He is involved in all aspects of the MarineGEO data lifecycle, from helping to develop data collection protocols and related materials to making MarineGEO data publicly available. Michael works with MarineGEO partners to provide support to enter and curate data and to provide access to existing MarineGEO data. He also develops web-based R Shiny applications, which are interactive applications built on R that can be used to share and explore data, enabling MarineGEO partners and the public to have easy access to, explore, and analyze MarineGEO data. Michael obtained his MA in Environmental and Ecological Anthropology from the University of Georgia in 2018.
