    For seminal contributions to distributed databases, real-time systems, heterogeneous database integration, warehousing, semi-structured data and for application of database research in bioinformatics.

Susan's work lies in fundamental computer science as it is applied to biomedicine. Her research interests center around information modeling and management, database systems, distributed systems, and bioinformatics. Within bioinformatics, Susan's group focuses on models and systems for data integration and exchange, representation and management of incomplete and semi-structured information, provenance tracking and management, and scientific workflows. Susan has also been instrumental in establishing degree programs in bioinformatics and computational biology at the undergraduate, master's, and doctoral levels.
