She is currently associate professor in the Physics Department of the Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG) in Belo Horizonte, MG, Brasil, working in solid state physics with emphasis in electron microscopy. Interdisciplinary collaboration with colleagues from physics, biology, chemistry, engineering, cultural heritage, geology and forensic sciences
On June 14th at 3 pm, Karla Balzuweit will talk about FAIR data and the challenge of interoperability in heritage science.
F.A.I.R. data, Findable – Accessible – Interoperable – Reusable, will be shortly introduced and the importance of working towards FAIR data will be discussed, especially in Heritage Science. Heritage Science is an extremely broad and interdisciplinary field that involves people with very different backgrounds as well as the most diverse techniques in every part of the planet with the goal of studying, understanding and preserving material and immaterial natural and cultural heritage. The challenges of making data interoperable using different characterisation techniques on material samples such as works of art, and geological and archaeological samples will be discussed.
