My name is Nicholas ‘Nick’ ‘Nickerbocker’ ‘Big Daddy Nick’ Robison, I’m an NLM Informatics Pre-Doctoral Training Fellow working on my PhD in Biomedical and Health Informatics at the University of Washington School of Medicine.
I spend my time toying with a variety of technologies from geospatial analysis, to high performance computing. My main focus is on scalable research systems for non-technical users, and emerging trends in data privacy.
This blog is a collection of snippets from my life, for those who are far away, musing on things I find interesting, and a dumping ground for what I wish to preserve for posterity. It’ll be laced with a fair amount of humor and tongue-in-cheek pop (at least at some point in time) culture references; however, don’t let that detract from how insightful and profound I think these posts are.
Also, opinions expressed here do not necessarily reflect the views or opinions of employers, affiliates, friends, or people I flirt with on the bus.
So, in the words of the great poet Snoop
