Data Science Showcase

Monday, October 14 
Room 314

The ECS Data Science Showcase will highlight new electrochemical and solid state research and the open source software and datasets that underpin the work. Research talks will be complemented by a demonstration on how others can access, use, modify, and improve the open source tools and data associated with the research project.

Because data science is a fast moving field, the showcase will conclude with a “Late Breaking News” session to feature emerging electrochemical and solid state research that embraces open software and open data sets. Especially valued are contributions that feature early stage research where alpha- and beta-testers can be solicited to improve new open research products. The organizers welcome direct email contact by prospective contributors to the Late Breaking News section, up to four weeks prior to the event.


Daniel Schwartz is the Boeing-Sutter Professor of Chemical Engineering and Director of the Clean Energy Institute at the University of Washington and brings electrochemistry and modeling expertise to the team.

David Beck is the director of research with the eScience Institute at the University of Washington and leads regular hackathons; he is also associate director of the NSF Data Intensive Research Enabling CleanTech PhD training program.

Matthew Murbach is past president of the ECS University of Washington Student Chapter and an advanced data sciences PhD trainee; he has been leading the student section software development sessions on the UW campus and has practical experience coaching electrochemical scientists and engineers in software development.
