Meet our ambassadors in Oceania

The Crossref Ambassador Program is an exciting and important program initiated in early 2018, and one which fully embraces a key strategic focus—to adapt to expanding constituencies.

Our Ambassadors are enthusiastic volunteers who work within the global academic community in a variety of ways—as librarians, researchers, publishers, and societies,—and all of whom share a strong belief in the mission-driven work we do to improve scholarly research communication. They support us by using their industry expertise, local knowledge, and translation skills to represent Crossref at regional events—providing training to our members in different languages, locations and time zones.

In addition to English, Melroy also speaks Hindi and Marathi. In his spare time after work and family commitments, Melroy can be found playing/coaching football (soccer) or sitting on the couch reading a good book.
