Ms Sam Grabus
I am currently a first-year doctoral student in Drexel University's Information Studies PhD program. I'm very interested in issues relating to data description, data sharing, and ethical issues. My research interest stems from my course work, my developing expertise in metadata, and my current work on the "Licensing Model and Ecosystem for Data sharing' project, a Northeast Big Data Innovation Hub spokes initiative. The spokes initiative is working towards the implementation of a data sharing platform with a set of built-in standardized license agreement options. The goal is to facilitate faster, easier, and safer data sharing between industry and academia.
