Recognizing Computational and Data Advances that Enable Scientific Discovery
The Greg Leptoukh Lecture is presented annually and recognizes significant contributions to informatics, computational, or data sciences through research, education, and related activities. It is given to a mid-career or senior scientist. The Leptoukh Lecture aims to raise awareness of computational and data advances that enable scientific discoveries and to foster continued contributions in informatics and data science.
It honors the life of Greg Leptoukh, an Earth scientist who was active in the informatics community and worked on projects related to both data quality and data provenance.
This lecture is presented at the Informatics Section reception during AGU's annual meeting.
