Data care, data reuse

I am a postdoctoral research fellow investigating data practices. Most of my time is spent at the University of Vienna, where I am affiliated with the Visualization and Data Analysis Research Group (Faculty of Computer Science) and the Department of Science and Technology Studies. I also work as a postdoctoral researcher at the Scholarly Communications Lab at the University of Ottawa.

My expertise is in information science, science & technology studies and human-centered data science. I am interested in practices of data care and curation – and in understanding what these practices afford. My past and current projects investigate how people manage, discover, make sense of, and reuse 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.
