Beyond Big Data: Smart Data for Driving Scientific Discovery

Data can both empower as well as overwhelm scientists. The “5 V’s” represent the most common big data challenges facing scientists today: volume, velocity, value, veracity and variety.


Alexandra Vamvakidou-Thomas earned a Ph.D in Biomedical Engineering from Drexel University by combining her interests in problem solving and the biological sciences. She has presented in numerous webinars, conferences and workshops, and her experience in lab work and data analysis makes it possible for her to work closely with researchers to identify their challenges and propose solutions. Alexandra held various scientific and commercial positions with Integromics, SA, before joining PerkinElmer in 2012 as a specialist for the TIBCO Spotfire data analysis platform.
