Gabriele Hayden consults with students, faculty, and researchers on research data management, sourcing and sharing data, and best practices in computational reproducibility. You can read more about her work consulting with students, researchers, and faculty in this profile of the Data Services Department and this profile on the DH@UO blog. She discusses the relationship between her training in English and her current data work in an interview with Prof. Paul Peppis for UO Today (YouTube or SoundCloud). Gabriele earned her PhD in English Literature from Yale University and her BA in English from Reed College. She has worked with open source software and enterprise database reporting in the non-profit and private sectors.

Many of Gabriele's presentations are available as recordings online. In "The Cultural Meaning of Programming Languages," she discusses how gendered stereotypes about programming languages used to exclude people parallel similar dynamics in literary history. She has also discussed the possibilities and limits of using Docker environments in your research and strategies for inclusion in data literacy programming. She once had a poem published on Tri-Met busses in Portland, OR.
