Miles Nicholls - Data Manager

With a background as a business analyst in data warehousing and business intelligence Miles has been working with the Atlas since late 2009 as Data Manager.  Miles has  qualifications in science (although never used in anger and frighteningly out of date) and information systems and thinks it's great that the ALA combines the two.  Miles' work with the ALA involves discussing data sharing, open access licensing, data schemas and formats with the owners of data and transforming data using whatever tool will do the best job at the time.
