Don Keefer Defends Dissertation

Doctoral Candidate Don Keefer successfully defended his dissertation, “ADVANCING KNOWLEDGE-RICH INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS IN GEOLOGY: RESEARCH ON INTELLIGENT INTEGRATION, REPRESENTATION, AND USE” on October 5th and will graduate December 2023.

Program Area: Cognitive Science and Language Processing


I am interested in studying knowledge acquisition in the cognitive methods geologists use both when developing conceptual models, and when classifying observational data according to these conceptual models.  

I am particularly interested in improving our operational understanding of the propagation of uncertainty within geologic reasoning when it is expressed in maps and models.
