Alireza joined the team at Scientific Data in November 2022. After completing his PhD at Durham University in 2018, he took a postdoctoral position at the University of Stockholm. Alireza’s research interests have focused on the genetics and genomics of flower development and evolution in wild flax (Linum).

Susanna-Assunta Sansone

Honorary Academic Editor

Susanna focuses on the strategic development of Scientific Data, particularly by fostering relationships with the scientific community and helping to define standards for data reuse. She did her PhD at Imperial College London, and then spent a few years at a private vaccine company before moving into data management and biocuration at the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI), in Cambridge. In 2010, Susanna joined the University of Oxford, UK. Currently she is an Associate Director and Principal Investigator at the Oxford e-Research Centre, a Full Professor at the Department of Engineering Science, and the University-wide Academic Lead for Research Practice. Her team works on methods and software for curating, sharing and enabling reproducible research. She also works with funding agencies and informatics initiatives to promote community-developed ontologies and standards, and is on the board of several community standardization efforts and open science advocacy initiatives. https://sansonegroup.eng.ox.ac.uk/
