How do people find, make sense of and use data?

I am a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Vienna and am affiliated with the Visualization and Data Analysis Research Group (Faculty of Computer Science) and the Department of Science and Technology Studies. I am also a visiting scholar at the Scholarly Communications Lab in Canada.

My expertise is in information science, science & technology studies and the human aspects of data science. My work examines data practices through a critical data studies lens, focusing on how people manage, discover, make sense of, and use research data in academia and in public life.

My Ph.D. (cum laude) is in science & technology studies and I have masters degrees in both library and information science and education. I have worked in the United States, Germany, the Netherlands and Austria.
