Short Bio: Dr. Margaret-Anne Storey is a Professor of Computer Science and the Director of the Software Engineering program at the University of Victoria. She holds a Canada Research Chair in Human and Social Aspects of Software Engineering. Her research goal is to understand how technology can help people explore, understand, and share complex information and knowledge. She evaluates and applies techniques from knowledge engineering, social software, and visual interface design to applications such as collaborative software development, program comprehension, biomedical ontology development, and learning in Web-based environments.
Some of her past projects include investigating the role of social media in collaborative software engineering, improving information visualization techniques, and developing social software to facilitate the next version of the International Classification of Diseases with the World Health Organization. Dr. Storey recently wrapped up a 10-year project as a Principal Investigator for the National Center for Biomedical Ontology with the National Institutes of Health in the United States.
