On today's episode, Dr. Lena Karvovskaya (Utrecht University) is on the podcast to talk about her current work as a research data manager, as well as her earlier PhD research studying theoretical linguistics and the grammar of possession.
In complex data management, how does Lena work with users with projects that need new connections? In what ways does her building community between users and her university library help research data get collected and shared? How has the COVID-19 pandemic changed her role in these large-scale scientific projects?
We also talk about Lena's PhD thesis that looked at the typology and formal semantics in different languages. What are the different types of questions linguists may look at in the research environment? When doing this work in theoretical linguistics and language documentation, where did Lena go on fieldwork trips to collect data on Ishkashimi and Shughni?
You can find more information in the show notes under the episode on our website.
Lena can be found on Twitter if anyone has questions for him.
