May 16, 2019

David Gotz, Associate Professor at the UNC School of Information and Library Science (SILS) and Assistant Director of the Carolina Health Informatics Program (CHIP), was recently interviewed for WCHL’s Focus Carolina program.

In the radio segment, Gotz discusses how his data visualization research can make an impact in health care and beyond.

“The ultimate output that I hope for here is a set of tools –  informed by our research and evaluated by our studies so we understand how they work and when they work and when they don’t work and what their limitations are – that will allow other people to do their work more effectively,” Gotz explains in the interview.
