Biography

I am a PhD candidate (expected spring 2020) of the Universitat Politecnica de Valencia (Spain). My background is in Science in Information with a strong specialization on records and archives. I am a Fulbright Fellow Alumna (2012-2014), and an Eramus Mundus Fellow Alumna (2016-2017) My current research aims to provide a holistic view of the process of reusing data by researchers in order to answer new research questions. I am interested in the different types of decision-making processes, negotiations, and agreements among researchers, and between other data stakeholders. Also, my research aims to understand how researchers manage to balance simultaneously enabling and hindering factors when accessing and reusing data. I have other research interests such as decisive factors of trust on digital documents; digital preservation; ethic issues of data sharing and reuse; sociology of science; sociology of scientific knowledge; acceptance of digital documents as evidence of human rights violations; social memory; etc.
