Brief CV

 

Isabella is currently the Manager of the National River Flow Archive (NRFA). The NRFA acts as the main focal point for hydrometric data in the UK, providing stewardship of, and access to, daily, monthly and flood peak river flow data from over 1,500 gauging stations across the UK. The NRFA collates, quality controls, and archives hydrometric data from gauging station networks across the UK including the extensive networks operated by the Environment Agency (England), Natural Resources Wales, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency and the Rivers Agency (Northern Ireland).

For a period before managing the NRFA, Isabella’s role was as Data Co-ordinator for the NERC funded Analysis of Historic Droughts and Water Scarcity project where she liaised with the eight partners to identify the datasets that would form part of the novel Drought Inventory that she helped to design and build as part of the project.

Prior to that, she was the Project Manager for the 3 year NERC Water Security Knowledge Exchange Programme. The Programme aimed to increase the uptake of NERC research outputs in the water security area by relevant businesses, policy makers, regulators and Civil Society Organisations. The Programme created a portal containing news and event information, and three useful tools: a research directory, a case study site and a water data portal.

Previously, Isabella was involved in the management of large European research projects facilitating the implementation of integrated water management and the Water Framework Directive. These include the following projects: HarmonIT, HarmoniRiB, AquaStress and OpenMI-LIFE. She was the Project Manager for the OpenMI-LIFE project whose aim was to transform the Open Modelling Interface and Environment (the OpenMI) from research output to operational product.

Earlier in her career, Isabella was the Data Centre Manager for the LOIS, ED, URGENT, CHASM and LOCAR Thematic Programme Data Centres. She was responsible for establishing and implementing Data Policies and Data Management Plans. Data management responsibilities included: identifying user requirements, defining data dictionaries and standards, acquiring data from scientists and third parties, storing the data in the WIS database, developing metadata tools, data dissemination and exploitation and ensuring that all programme researchers received the information they required for their science projects.
