Kam Woods is a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the School of Information and Library Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He is currently Technical Lead on the BitCurator project, and works with Dr. Cal Lee developing techniques and tools to assist in long-term archiving of born-digital data.
Kam’s research focuses on long-term preservation of born-digital materials. He is interested in interdisciplinary approaches that combine technologies and expertise in the areas of archiving, computer science, and digital forensics for the purpose of enabling and maintaining access to digital objects that are at risk due to obsolescence. Prior to his current work at UNC, Kam worked with Cal Lee on the development of educational materials to support the use of realistic forensic datasets in professional training and to identify and explore novel uses of forensic data and tools in the context of digital archives.
