Cynthia (Cyndy) Sims Parr

My background

I am still not sure if I am a scientist or an engineer. My doctorate is in biology and my primary interests are in behavior, ecology, and evolution (other keywords: bioacoustics, birds, cooperative breeding). On the other hand, my research for the last eight years or so has almost exclusively been in human-computer interaction and semantic web technology. Always my interest in technology serves my favorite biological domains. Except for a short time when I acted as a systems administrator for a large multi-national financial company.

Currently I hold two research faculty positions where I lead small teams of programmers on a variety of biodiversity-related projects.

My philosophy


My webpage should provide ample linkage.
