Purdue interdisciplinary research team to build ethical data management competencies in undergraduate researchers

A team comprised of faculty from Purdue Libraries, the School of Engineering Education (ENE), and the Elmore Family School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) was awarded $542,660 from the National Science Foundation to build data lifecycle ethical management (DLEM) competencies in undergraduate student researchers, with emphasis on the ethical handling of data. “Not only will VIP inform the work on this research project, the program’s students and their graduate and faculty mentors will benefit directly from the resources and tools to be developed,” said VIP Program Director Carla Zoltowski, a clinical associate professor of engineering practice and co-PI for the project. “Many of the VIP teams involve data and utilize AI/ML approaches to address their research and design challenges, so it becomes incredibly important for the teams to learn and implement ethical data management and design/research decision-making strategies given the real-life implications of the projects.”
