Sigfried Gold is an information visualization researcher and medical informaticist specializing in software and infrastructure to improve the productivity and quality of in silico studies of healthcare data, particularly around the use of standardized medical terminologies and common data models in distributed research networks. Sigfried consults as an informaticist and visualization designer. He is a devoted contributor to open science and open source projects including OHDSI, MCBK, and supergroup.js. Sigfried is currently a PhD student with the UMD College of Information Studies and HCIL, advised by Niklas Elmqvist and Leilani Battle. He built the Patient Profile visualization in ATLAS while consulting for Janssen Research and Development and is currently contracting as an OHDSI specialist to the National Library of Medicine.
