"CDDI aims to establish the Cascadia region as the global leader in biomedical data science and health technology innovation, with a robust health data ecosystem that focuses on enabling collaboration, data sharing, and data-driven research."
Data Science for Social Good
This year's Data Science for Social Good program has been in full swing this summer with16 students hailing from universities across the country joining together with project leads and data scientists to work on issues of societal benefit through data science. Learn more about this year's team in a blog post and find project descriptions on our website.
We wish to welcome Scott Henderson, previously a postdoctoral fellow, as a research scientist in the Department of Earth and Space Sciences. He uses measurements from satellites and on-ground geophysical sensors to characterize subsurface geologic processes such as volcanic unrest, landslides, and earthquakes.
