Broad research Interests and activities

My research gravitates around the over-arching notion of Metadata Analytics.

This interest stems from the observation that much insight can be gained not just from data, ie through what is known as Data Science, but from the application of analytics techniques to metadata.

[2015] Data Trajectories: a research agenda. See also my initial paper:

Missier, P., Data trajectories: tracking reuse of published data for transitive credit attribution. In Procs. 11th International Data Curation Conference, 2016. DCC 

Data Provenance:

See my publications (group by keyword) for a lot more provenance work

Data Analytics:
  • 2015: Twitter content analysis for the detection of Dengue outbreaks in Brasil.
1 year project funded by the Newton Fund, in collaboration with PUC-Rio de Janeiro, Brasil

Current and past funded projects

2016-2019: PI, ReCompsustained value extraction from analytics by recurring, selective re-computation.  EPSRC funding £585,000, 2015-2018.

2013-2015: PI, Cloud-eGenomeimplementing efficient and cost-effective genomics data processing pipelines using workflow technology on the Cloud.
