Douglas Fils joined the Consortium for Ocean Leadership in the position of Data Management Technical Expert in December 2009. His responsibilities involve coordinating with other USIO data management staff with the goal of implementing a common architecture for the distribution of IODP data resources. Prior to coming to Ocean Leadership, Doug worked with the NSF originated CHRONOS effort establishing services oriented procedures for the distribution of Earth history databases, tools, and services. Doug's other activities have included working with the U.S. Department of Energy's Ames Laboratory and the the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP). In collaboration with ICTP, and with support from the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), Doug worked in over 12 developing countries. During these travels, he worked with others to establish local computer resources, communications and training procedures for universities and research organizations. Doug is a life long Iowan, having grown up on a small farm in southern Iowa. He enjoys returning to help with harvest and some occasional fishing and hunting.
