Gunderman Receives Data CuRe Fellowship

Hannah Gunderman

The Data Curation for Reproducibility (Data CuRe) Training Program has awarded a fellowship to Data, Gaming, and Popular Culture Librarian Hannah Gunderman to promote training in and adoption of curation practices for transparent, reproducible quantitative research.

The inaugural term of the Fellowships is one academic year (2021-2022). Fellows will contribute to curriculum development and implementation and have responsibilities in three areas: Incorporating Data CuRe practices in their own work, engaging in the development, dissemination, and evaluation of the Data CuRe curriculum, and attending a professional conference related to Data CuRe (before June 2022).

The Fellowship provides a $1,000 stipend alongside professional development, education, and training opportunities in data curation and code review in support of raising awareness and building capacity for sound practices of curating for reproducibility.

In their role as the Data, Gaming, and Popular Culture Librarian at CMU Libraries, Gunderman provides holistic data management and data curation services to all disciplines in the CMU community, and offers consultations on gaming and popular culture research. They also write the Libraries' monthly "Tartan Datascapes" blog, which highlights the wide variety of data engagement across the CMU campus. As a part of this fellowship, Gunderman will have a capstone project designed around the idea of pop culture pedagogy supporting reproducibility.

“I look forward to seeing the ways I can bring the work of this fellowship to CMU Libraries' efforts in open research,” said Gunderman.
