John A Reed

John is a Data Manager and Wildlife Biologist at the Alaska Science Center.

I work with our Data Management Team and science staff to organize, document, review, archive, and publish data from all research disciplines at the Alaska Science Center (ASC). We focus on timely scientific data publication, following the Federal Open Data directive, USGS Fundamental Science Practices (FSP) guidance, and FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable) data principles. We continually work to improve access to, documentation and utility of, and processing efficiency of ASC data products.

My wildlife focus has been field and laboratory studies of waterfowl demographics and disease throughout the state of Alaska. I have been involved in many research projects at the Alaska Science Center, including field work with gulls and loons around coastal Alaska, caribou in Denali National Park, walrus in the Chukchi Sea, and sea otters in Prince William Sound.
