Welcome to “Bix•Digital” Consulting, Gerald Benoît’s central site for training materials, demonstration software and analysis, client contact, and all-around welcome. With 25 years of experience as a programmer/analyst, professor, and systems consultant, I offer services in analysis & system design, full-stack development (user-end websites, interactive visualizations, information architecture, data access, metadata and ontologies) and back-end solutions, such as programming & work-force development. As a college professor, teaching data science, computer science, and information-science courses I try to keep up with trends in better information exchange.

Here’s a link to my CV, detailing my research papers,
teaching, and service activities. Before joining academia,
I served in the US Navy, later as a programmer/analyst and
art directory for an international design firm. Along the
way I've helped institutions of all sizes answer questions
about software purchases, data integration, work-force development,
visualization of data, and creating more efficient, effective
cooperation between people and data.
Ph.D. (UCLA), M.S. (Columbia Univ.), B.A. (UC Davis, double major Russian & French).
