Christine Malinowski joined the MIT Libraries in September 2014 to begin a two-year fellowship in the area of research data management. She is a 2013 graduate of the University of Washington iSchool, where she was also a graduate staff assistant. She has a BS in Geochemistry from Millersville University, and an MS in Science Journalism from Boston University. Prior to MIT, she was the science and data services librarian at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon.
Malinowski supports MIT students, faculty, and researchers working with research data. This includes providing assistance with creating data management plans, individual consultations, and workshops on data management best practices and technologies.
“The best part of the job is interacting with such a wide swath of talent and expertise in the Libraries, and the broader MIT community,” Malinowski said. “I really look forward to bolstering what we are able to offer in research data management.”
Malinowski once lived Boston, and was excited to return. “I love living in such a walkable city again where I average about 5-6 miles walking to and from work alone!” she said.
