Computational skills for 21st century scientists

18 October 2019 | Open Science Day | Forum Rolex

Open science is a complex and transversal topic that can only be understood when a variety of point of views collide. We invited world-class researchers and policy makers, from both sides of the Atlantic, to give their perspective on the promises and challenges of open and reproducible science.

Jeannette M. Wing is Avanessians Director of the Data Science Institute at Columbia University, where she is also a professor of computer science. She earned her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 1979, and her PhD in 1983, also from MIT. Her areas of research expertise include software specification and verification, concurrent and distributed systems, and programming languages. Together with Barbara Liskov, she developed a particular definition of a subtyping relation known as the Liskov substitution principle.
