Rich Gazan Welcome to my home page. I hold a dual-culture faculty position at the intersection of Information & Computer Sciences and Library & Information Science. I'm interested in how people integrate diverse types of knowledge, from document collections to the work of people with different kinds of expertise. I study interdisciplinary scientific collaborations with the NASA Astrobiology Institute at UH, and social Q&A communities like Answerbag.

I am also Chair of the Interdisciplinary PhD Program in Communication & Information Sciences, which encompasses four units and three colleges across the University of Hawaii.
