I’m a PhD candidate at the University of Michigan School of Information. My research primarily focuses on digital preservation and data curation. Currently, I’m finishing my dissertation, The Role of Value in Data Practices: A Multi-Case Study of Three Small Teams of Scientists. I’m using a qualitative approach to investigate how field station researchers conceive of the value of their data and how these conceptions connect to their data practices. I expect findings from my study to better illuminate how scientists make decisions about what to do with their data.
