I’m a polymath interested in a lot of fields of study, including mathematics, anthropology, and historiography. I am not a huge fan of formal peer review and prefer open science. I’m hoping hat over time, open science, through institutions like Humanities Commons and the Open Science Framework, will replace our stagnating system of publication.

As Head of KU Leuven Libraries Artes, I am responsible for collections and services for the Arts and Humanities. As a member of the management team with primary responsibilities for research, I also contribute to the strategic development and operational management of KU Leuven Libraries as a whole. In this context, I particularly focus on scholarly communication, open science and digital scholarship. I was trained as a (Neo-)Latinist, focusing on Renaissance humanism in the Low Countries and England, the classical tradition, and the history of the book. Ever since I became a librarian my research and teaching have centered around the role of academic libraries in scholarly communication, open science and digital scholarship within the humanities. I am a strong believer in Fair Open Access and serve on the editorial board of the Open Library of Humanities and the Journal of Librarianship and Scholarly Communication.
In March 2018, I joined the Open Science Team at the University of Bern in Switzerland following eight years at the University of Heidelberg, Germany where I ran the Publications Office of the Cluster of Excellence “Asia and Europe in a Global Context”. In a previous life I was a specialist in Russian literature and cinema…
I am a historian interested in East-Central and Eastern European History. My focus lies on the relations and entanglements of these areas with the German lands, especially in the Age of Enlightenment and the ‘Age of Extremes’. Another focus of my work are digital methods and the concepts of Open Science and Citicen Science in the field of historical research. After several years as research assistant at Chemnitz University of Technology (Institute of European History, Institute of European Studies), I work as head of the divison “Saxonica” (since 2016) and vice head of the department “Manuscripts, Rare Prints, and Saxony” (since 2017) at Saxon State and University Library (SLUB), Dresden.
I have 15 years of progressively responsible management and leadership experience in academic libraries, research centers, and library associations driving programs and R&D projects focused on the technologies, policies, and best practices that support the long–term stewardship, access, and impact of digital research outputs and digital cultural heritages. I also conduct research in the areas of scholarly communication, digital scholarship, digital stewardship, data curation, metadata, information modeling, and conceptual foundations of LIS. I am currently Open Science Librarian at the European University Institute. I was formerly Head of International Projects at LIBER, the Association of European Research Libraries and Head of Scholarly Communication Services at Columbia University Libraries
