Data Curation Librarian | University of Michigan
Rachel works with library professionals and campus researchers to support data management planning and implementation across the research process. This includes a focus on data sharing and archiving via the University of Michigan’s data repository, Deep Blue Data, for which she serves as a curator as well as the service coordinator. Rachel is particularly interested in data repositories as storehouses for cultural heritage information, and research communities who may be under-supported in data management, dissemination, and preservation. Her background is in qualitative research, languages and humanities and she has extensive experience from previous positions with international health and population data such as surveys, epidemiological surveillance, and disease registries.
