We are very pleased to announce Tracy Teal as one of the keynote speakers at CarpentryConnect Manchester 2019. Her talk “Democratising data: building inclusive communities teaching universal data literacy” will address issues around supporting the creation and development of inclusive communities and teaching researchers data skills.
Dr Tracy Teal is co-founder of Data Carpentry and now the Executive Director of The Carpentries. She received her PhD in Computation and Neural Systems from California Institute of Technology, was an NSF Postdoctoral Researcher in Biological Informatics and then an Assistant Professor in Microbiology at Michigan State University. While an assistant professor, she saw researchers' need for effective data skills to effectively and reproducibly conduct research, and co-founded Data Carpentry to scale data training along with data production.
