Maarten Sierhuis Maarten Sierhuis is a computer scientist, with a Ph.D. in social science and informatics from the University of Amsterdam in The Netherlands. Early on in his career he specialized in designing expert systems, with a particular focus on the role of such systems in the larger context of the total work process. Today he believes that technology designers need a deep understanding of how people work in practice, before they even attempt to develop technology for people.
His research in the last ten years has focused on computational modeling and simulation techniques for understanding how people work in practice. In technical terms we call this work practice modeling and simulation. He beliefs that through modeling the practice and context in which work occurs, software designers will have a better understanding of people and software systems might become better equipped in assisting people, while enhancing people's work life. Our field test in this mission is applying some of this research and testing it in the harsh reality, of yet ill-defined practices, of planetary EVAs.

Each group will pick one of the following molecular biologist or biochemists or choose another scientist and have it approved by the instructor. Only one group per scientist so if you have a particular one you want, let me know early and I'll save it for you. [CHOSEN LIST Of SCIENTISTS GOES HERE] Then your group will research this person to find out their educational background, when and where they did their research, what specific scientific contribution they made and any other specific tidbits about them. I suggest that you split up the tasks within your group and come back with the information for everyone to share. You can check your textbook, Who's Who in Science and information online, but there are also a couple of more historical books on reserve in the library that might be useful. You can also try to get a copy of one of their research articles.
On October 17 th
Each person should bring back to the discussion class the information they have found out about the group's scientist. It would be easiest to have this written or typed out and copied for each person in the group. For the first half hour, the groups should compare these notes and exchange information. Then all the groups will come together and share with the whole discussion class what they found out about their scientist for about 5-7 minutes each. You will likely not be able to tell everything you found out, but maybe just some interesting highlights or particularly unusual fact that you found about them.
