I am a third-year PhD student in the Department of Biomedical Informatics and Medical Education (BIME) at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA. I study knowledge representation, biomedical ontologies, models of human anatomy and physiology, and how these tools can be used to infer knowledge about disease pathology. Here are my CV, my publications, and some work-related thoughts, some of which can also be found on Google Scholar or LinkedIn.

I have been living in Seattle since September of 2014. Before that, I have lived in Baltimore, MD, Beijing, China, Cambridge, MA and Ellicott City, MD, all of which I consider home to varying degrees. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, biking, foraging for mushrooms, playing go (weiqi), drinking tea, cooking, and working on miscellaneous projects. See photos and writings from my latest exploits.

This quarter, Spring 2017, I am working on my dissertation research (on knowledge representation choices and interoperability of biological pathway resources).

Feel free to contact me about projects: past, present, or future. I can be reached at lucylw@uw.edu.
