Kalpana Shankar

After completing my Ph.D. in library and information science at UCLA, I conducted postdoctoral research in the Center for Embedded Networked Sensing at UCLA and completed a AAAS Science Policy Fellowship at the National Institutes of Health Office of Evaluation.  I was an Assistant Professor at Indiana University-Bloomington’s School of Informatics and Computing before joining the staff at UCD in the School of Information and Library Studies in July 2011.

My research focuses on the uses of data and information (digital and otherwise) in the social sciences, open data, and data archives. I draw from theory and practice in archival and information studies and STS (science, technology, and society), as well as related fields such as computer supported cooperative work and human-computer interaction.
