THATCamp Coordinator!

Fiona Tweedie was until recently a research and policy officer for the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission, before joining the University of Melbourne’s ITS Research Services group. As a research community manager for the humanities and social sciences, she is helping to build communities of researchers around tools including Tilemill and CartoDB. With a PhD in Roman history, she knows first hand the need for researchers to produce maps for themselves, and has created her own maps showing patterns of Roman colonisation. She is also an ambassador for the Open Knowledge Foundation, leading the organisation of the Victorian branch of GovHack 2014, a nationwide open data hackfest taking place in July.
