Ayoung Yoon is an Assistant Professor at Indiana University School of Informatics and Computing (IUPUI), Department of Library and Information Science. She is also a RDA/US data share fellow for 2016-2017. She holds a Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and M.S.I. from the University of Michigan.

Her research areas include data curation, digital preservation, and data sharing/reuse. She is particularly interested in constructing effective cyberinfrastructure for data sharing and reuse through proper curation and preservation practices. Currently she is conducting several research projects focusing on communities’ needs of data sharing, reuse, and curation.
