About the speaker
Jevin D. West is an Assistant Professor in the Information School at the University of Washington and co-founder of the DataLab. With his colleague, Carl Bergstrom, he developed a new course on Calling Bullshit. This rooted out of his core research in data science, data reasoning and the science of science. Using millions of scholarly papers as his sandbox, he asks questions about the origins of scientific disciplines, the social and economic biases within science, and the impact the current publication system has on the health of science. To study these questions, he develops machine learning techniques for mining scientific text, citations, mathematical equations and figures. Example projects include Eigenfactor.org and Viziometrics.org. More details on his research and teaching can be found at: jevinwest.org.
