Medical Informaticist (MA, Columbia DBMI)
Information Visualization Consultant, InfoViz Consulting, LLC
PhD Student, Human-Computer Interaction Lab, University of Maryland
Sigfried Gold designs and develops interactive information visualization software for OHDSI both as a consultant (Janssen Research, University of Colorado Hospital, Columbia University) and for his PhD research. He has been building database and web applications for thirty years. He received a Master’s in BioMedical Informatics at Columbia University in the department that now runs the OHDSI Coordinating Center. He built the Patient Profile visualization in ATLAS while consulting for Janssen Research and Development and is currently developing vocabulary visualization tools for the University of Colorado.
He is looking for collaboration opportunities for OHDSI visualization research — hoping to combine the storied expertise of the UMD HCIL (c.f., EventFlow, CoCo, Tree Maps) with the informatics, clinical research, and epidemiology expertise of members of the OHDSI community.
