The scientist interviewed for this data curation profiles is conducting interdisciplinary research on movement and balance. Specifically, he is focusing on movement analysis of groups that include special populations (i.e., people with injury or disability) people with typical development (i.e., without injury). The data management needs center around the need for infrastructure to accommodate large quantities and types of data, including both raw data and reduced, abstracted data. The researcher also identified the importance of maintaining the data from special populations for five to ten years due to the cost of replacing the data.
