Margaret L. Hedstrom, PhD, is PI for Sustainable Environment Actionable Data (SEAD), a National Science Foundation-funded project to create data services for sustainability science research. SEAD is a collaboration among researchers at the University of Michigan, Indiana University, and University of Illinois - Urbana-Champaign. Previous international research projects include CAMiLEON, conducted in partnership with the University of Leeds and funded by the NSF and the Joint Information Systems Committee in the UK. CAMiLEON sought to find emulation solutions for long-term preservation of digital records. Hedstrom has also directed an NSF-sponsored traineeship (IGERT) that investigates tools and policies for data sharing and data management in partnership with faculty and doctoral students in bioinformatics, computer science, information science, and materials research.
