A short biography:

I received my BA from Wellesley College in biological psychology and my Ph. D. in neuroscience in 1990 from the University of California, San Diego, where I am currently a Professor in the Department of Neuroscience. My background is in neuroanatomy, particularly light and electron microscopy, but I spend most of my time now in the field of neuroinformatics.  I am the principal investigator of the Neuroinformatics Framework project, a national project to establish a uniform resource description framework for neuroscience.  My recent work has focused on building ontologies for neuroscience for data integration. I just completed my tenure as the US scientific representative to the International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility (INCF), where I still head to program on ontologies. I recently joined FORCE11, an organization dedicated to advancing scholarly communication and e-scholarship, as Executive Director.
