Marko Rodriguez has had a mouse in his hand since he was 8 years old.
“All my life I have been on a computer,” he said.
He earned his PhD in computer science two years ago at the University of California, Santa Cruz. Now, among his many appellations he can describe himself as a director’s postdoctoral fellow at Los Alamos National Laboratory’s Center for Non-Linear Studies where he is also associated with the lab’s Applied Mathematics and Plasma Physics group in the Theoretical Division.
It’s a job that suits him well because it provides a kind of freedom to explore some extraordinary ideas.
Last week he gave a talk at a national risk analysis symposium in Pojoaque on large-scale knowledge management. Using graph databases to store huge volumes of interrelated informational structures is kind of his bread and butter.
He was a collaborator on a paper that was widely reported nationally last month by his colleague and mentor Johan Bollen on “Maps of Knowledge” that tracked the “clickstream” of a billion clicks from a broad sampling of scientific portals, a new way of perceiving more immediately what is happening in the technical universe.
But don’t try to pin him down yet.
