We are thrilled to announce that Alexis Tindall is one of the newest members of the eRSA family, where she will be joining the Research Engagement Specialist team.
With a strong humanities, arts and social sciences (HASS) background, in addition to vast experience in the galleries, libraries, archives and museums (GLAM) sector, Alexis has hit the ground running in her role supporting the Cultures and Communities Project.
Prior to starting with eRSA, Alexis was a Collections Community Coordinator for the Atlas of Living Australia (ALA), where she helped further relationships between Australia’s natural history museum community and the NCRIS-supported ALA, increasing the delivery of online materials for the biodiversity research community.
Alexis also was the Digitisation Project Manager with the South Australian Museum for six years. During this time, her efforts with a team of volunteers boosted the rate of digitisation of the Museum’s materials, and she was responsible for other digital initiatives at the Museum, including their involvement in GovHack, coordinating the content for the Field Guide to South Australian Fauna app, and producing specimen photographs for researchers.
In her new position at eRSA, Alexis will be reporting and providing community engagement around the Cultures and Communities Project, and supporting the wider HASS community in planning for the next stage of support under the NCRIS road map. She will also be working closely with partners and clients from the HASS community interested in accessing eRSA’s high-performance-computing and cloud-based services.
Be sure to say hello to Alexis at eRSA’s upcoming Digital Humanities Pathways Forums, including the Canberra event this Friday. Or get in contact via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
