Daniel Mietchen
Professional, University of Virginia, School of Data Science
I am a biophysicist interested in integrating research and education workflows with the World Wide Web, particularly through open licensing, open standards, open collaboration, public version histories and forkability. With research activities spanning from the subcellular to the organismic level, from fossils to developing embryos, from biodiversity informatics to data science more broadly and how this all fits with sustainable development, I experienced multiple shades of the research cycle and a variety of approaches to collaboration, sharing and reproducibility in research contexts. I have also been contributing to Wikipedia and its sister projects for almost two decades and am actively engaged in increasing the interactions between the Wikimedia and research communities, particularly around Wikidata. All of this informs my current activities as a data scientist at the University of Virginia.
