Clare Dyer-Smith

Research Interests

As coordinator of the Cambridge Big Data Strategic Research Initiative, I support a broad community of researchers from over 50 departments of the University and in related institutes such as the EBI. The Initiative is aimed providing a focus for research in the use of large and/or complex datasets from across the natural and social sciences, and in fostering interdisciplinary collaboration.

My responsibilities include identifying opportunities for cross-disciplinary research, helping researchers to find collaborators, organising events and workshops, managing communications including a website and fortnightly newsletter, and supporting the Steering Committee of the Initiative. I also assist in the preparation of large cross-disciplinary funding proposals, and broker relationships between Cambridge academics and external stakeholders from business, government and the third sector.
