Charlotte Zborowski from the Department of Bioproducts and Biosystems, and Pedro Silva from the Department of Chemistry and Materials Science have joined the research data management network of Aalto University as data agents. Both represent the School of Chemical Engineering.

Dr. Zborowski and Dr. Silva help researchers of their departments with issues related to research data management.

Zborowski’s expertise covers surface characterization and materials research. She has a multidisciplinary experience in physics from working on XPS characterization applied to microelectronic and from her background in chemistry and is now working on projects involving bioproducts.

Silva is specialized in structural, functional, and smart materials. He is inspired by the ingenuity of the natural phenomena mechanisms and converting them into solutions that promote environmental sustainability. He studied the deformations occurring in some plant tendrils using computer simulations and produced polymeric filaments with diverse geometries, and now integrates a team developing innovative textiles capable of shape-shifting.

Charlotte and Pedro, why is research data management important?

Charlotte Zborowski: I believe that data management is one of the keys to successful research. It is crucial for the reuse of data for future projects. It helps to keep the research data safe and increases its quality and efficiency, especially when working with multiple collaborators.

Pedro Silva: Data is fundamental for supportingthe communication of science. In my opinion, the action of including all used data and clear descriptions related to it will soon become a necessity in scientific communications, moving towards openness and transparency. However, the availability of ever-growing information requires planned ways to enable data to be found and used by people with different backgrounds.
