PhD students Jonathan Crabtree and Thu-Mai Christian leading project to improve computational reproducibility

July 27, 2018

The Odum Institute for Research in Social Science has been awarded $500,000 by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation for a three-year grant project, Confirmable Reproducible Research (CoRe2) Environment: Linking Tools to Promote Computational Reproducibility.

Two UNC School of Information and Library Science (SILS) master’s program graduates and current doctoral students will be leading the project.

Jonathan Crabtree (MSIS ’11), assistant director of cyberinfrastructure at Odum, will serve as principal investigator with Thu-Mai Christian (MSIS ’12), assistant director for archives at Odum, as Co-PI. They will be building off previous work to create a computational environment for automating scientific verification and research replication workflows.
