Thank You, Aron Roberts!

Steve Masover and Aron Roberts, 2001

With a mix of sadness and cheer, we bid Aron Roberts a fond farewell from UC Berkeley, as he retires from the university and pursues other endeavors in the private sector. For the last eight years, Aron has worked with Research IT, and its predecessor, Data Services, as an Application Programmer. Between 2013 and 2014, he served on the team that helped to establish the current identity and direction of Research IT, and provided in-depth consulting to researchers to support their research computing needs.

Thank you, Jamie Wittenberg!

Jamie Wittenberg

We are very happy to publicly thank Jamie Wittenberg, our Research Data Management Program Director, whose last day at UC Berkeley is December 16, 2016.

Jamie joined us in July 2015 at an incredibly important time for our young Research Data Management program.  Because the program had such ambitious goals, we needed someone who could hit the ground running, build a website, develop content, and set up a consulting program.  Just as challenging, we needed someone who could be the bridge between two organizations, the library and Research IT.

At the end of April 2015, Camille Villa will be departing Research IT and the Digital Humanities at Berkeley program to pursue new directions in her career.

Camille got involved with digital humanities as an undergraduate. One of her first major contributions to Berkeley’s digital humanities program was suggesting the Free Speech Movement as the topic for a spring 2014 hackathon. The resulting #HackFSM event is still talked about today.

Welcoming Jamie Wittenberg

Jamie Wittenberg

Research IT and the Library welcome Jamie Wittenberg to UC Berkeley and to their joint Research Data Management program team. Jamie recently completed her Master of Science in Library and Information Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. As the  Service Design Analyst in the RDM program, Jamie will play a pivotal role in all aspects of the campus-wide initiative whose goal is to design, develop and deliver a comprehensive suite of services that help researchers manage, protect and share their data.  

Farewell and thanks to Glen Jackson

At the end of June, Research IT said farewell and best of luck to Glen Jackson, our colleague who retired after more than 20 years of service to UC Berkeley. Glen was the last remaining original team member of the Museum Informatics Project, an initiative that set out in the early 1990's to develop a world-class facility and team to support museum informatics solutions for the UC Berkeley campus and beyond.
