Welcome Sara – Our New Metadata Specialist

Hello from Sweden!
I’m Sara El-Gebali, and I’m excited to be joining DataCite’s Engagement team as a Metadata Specialist. It’s a new chapter for me, one in which I’ll engage with the dynamic world of Persistent Identifiers (PIDs) and be part of their global influence. One of the projects I am most excited to be joining is PID4NFDI, where I can work with the community shaping the PID landscape both nationally and internationally.
