The graduate student interviewed for this data curation profile is studying the ignition delay of fuel-air mixtures under high temperature and pressure conditions using a rapid compression facility. Specifically, the researcher is interested in the formation of reactants, such as greenhouse gases and pollutants. The data management issues include a lack of formal venues for sharing data widely and a lack of data management protocols within the researcher’s lab. He shared that within his lab, researchers typically create their own metadata according to personal preference.
