I currently work on the Data Conservancy project, and am a part of the Data Practices working group. <tab>Specifically, I am working on drafting a collection policy that will articulate the selection, acquisition, and deaccessioning criteria for the archive. My notebook on this work is called DC_CollectionPolicy (and yes, that rhymes).
I've recently started thinking about epidemiology as a domain I might like to explore. My motivation is the numerous datasets, and datatypes utilized by this group of researchers is unique, and widely disseminated. Their work is widely consumed and their methods are interdisciplinary / cross-disciplinary. The development of an Ontology ( ) and the semantic mark-up of papers ( ) in this domain is also very intriguing to me. If you've got any other suggestions for material I might look at please leave me a comment!
