Researcher in Linked Data (ontologies, metadata, Semantic Web), Computer Supported Collaboration (CSCW), Evidence, Arguments & Persuasion, and Scholarly communicationDepartment of Biomedical Informatics Pittsburgh, PA, USA
At the University of Pittsburgh Department of Biomedical Informatics I am an NIDCR/NLM-funded postdoctoral traineeship in biomedical informatics through June 30, 2016. I am working on representing biomedical evidence in nanopublications and micropublications and on understanding evidence synthesis and data reuse in oral health. Starting August 16, 2016, I will join the Graduate School of Library & Information Science at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign!
My dissertation, “Identifying, Annotating, and Filtering Arguments and Opinions in Open Collaboration Systems”, addresses the problem of analyzing, integrating, and reconciling information in online discussions.
I also have degrees in library & information science (M.S. UIUC), mathematics (M.A. UT-Austin), and liberal arts (B.A., Great Books, St. John's College).
From 2009-2013, during my Ph.D., I worked in the Social Software unit at the Digital Enterprise Research Institute (DERI), Galway under the supervision of Alexandre Passant, with funding from the Science Foundation Ireland Líon2 Project. I was the 2012 Zipf Fellow from CLIR and for 2012 was Honorary Research Associate at the University of Liverpool Department of Computer Science.
I worked in academic libraries and bookstores for 6 years before moving to Ireland's semantic web institute for my Ph.D. I continue to collaborate with cultural heritage organizations, particularly on Library Linked Data.
