Abdoulie received his BSc from the University of the Gambia in 2012 and recently completed his MSc in Health Informatics at Swansea University. He began his career in 2012 with the MRCG at LSHTM as a Trainee Software Developer for two years. In 2014, he got promoted to Senior Data Programmer for the BioBank project, EMRS, and various clinical trials in the unit. Although his focus in this role revolves more around devising data management plans, creating CRFs, and query management processes, his most recent role as a lead developer focuses on automating data management processes to increase efficiency.
Abdoulie is the Data Manager for the centre, handling all data management processes throughout the data lifecycle, with a focus on ensuring that the significant volume and diverse range of data produced are stored in line with best practices and conform to the FAIR principles. Consequently, he works closely with PIs and FIs with datasets to gather sufficient metadata for long-term data storage accessible through a catalogue.
