I work as the Data Steward at the TU Delft Faculties of Applied Sciences, and Mechanical, Maritime and Materials Engineering. I obtained my MSc degree at Radboud University Nijmegen from the program ‘Molecular Mechanisms of Disease’. Then, I did my PhD at the Molecular Genetics Department of Erasmus MC Rotterdam where I studied UV-induced DNA damage repair using proteomics and live cell imaging approaches. During my academic journey, I daily managed data during acquisition, analysis, and publication stages and therefore I have a good understanding of researchers’ perspective and experiences about data management. As a Data Steward, I provide customized and discipline-specific data management support to researchers at every stage of the research lifecycle, with the eventual goal of achieving a cultural change in research data management at daily practice.
