Ph.D. Stanford. 1985.
My research is contextually situated in two complementary arenas: (1) databases in the context of the internet; and (2) data management for biomedicine. What happens when you can connect many different databases that are autonomously organized and managed? How can you query and integrate and analyze all the information that you potentially have access to? How can one represent, and account for, variations in information structure and in information quality? How can a non-technical user be supported in performing these tasks? I use this framework to approach Data Science, and ethical questions in data science.
