Elisha M Wood-CharlsonPostdoctoral Researcher
Elisha M. Wood-Charlson has a PhD in marine science and has worked in a variety of research areas including coral symbioses, marine viruses, and microbe ecology on coral reefs. For the past few years, she has been exploring the professional space around scientific community engagement. In 2017, she was selected to join the inaugural AAAS Community Engagement Fellows Program, and finally found a niche that spoke to her fundamental need to make science more efficient through improved communication and collaboration. Dr. Wood-Charlson joined KBase in September 2018 as the User Engagement Lead. A role that allows her to explore ideas on how to build virtual communities around the stages of the scientific method, while supporting a data sharing and analysis platform that is committed to open science and following the FAIR data principles (findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable).
