Welcome to Kam Woods' web site.
I am a Research Scientist and Adjunct Faculty member in the School of Information and Library Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. My research interests include long-term digital preservation, private and sensitive data analysis and redaction, and the application of digital forensics tools and techniques to archival and preservation data management.
