Feeding Curiosity: A Smorgasbord of Open Data Sources for Research

Join presenters across the UC system for a lively discussion on finding and accessing open data for research. During this event, we’ll begin with an overview of open data, then have lightning talks about data resources we love, including:

  • A curated collection of health data resources
  • International survey and census data
  • Public datasets from Google BigQuery
  • A searchable repository of municipal-level data
  • A stockpile of unique and curious datasets from unexpected sources


  • Stephanie Labou, UC San Diego
  • Kat Koziar, UC Riverside
  • Geoff Boushey, UC San Francisco
  • Christy Navarro, UC Davis Health
  • Andy Lyons, UC Agriculture and Natural Resources
  • Ariel Deardorff, UC San Francisco (moderator)

This workshop is part of UC Love Data Week, a week-long offering of workshops focusing on using data to build a better future through data management, security, sharing, and preservation.  All members of the University of California community are welcome to attend.
