MC Term: January 2017 - December 2021
Head of Digital Strategy Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg Germany Cultural Heritage

I am an art historian with a research background in history of museums collections and their representation and I am involved in digital cultural heritage projects for over 10 years. Currently I am working as the head of digital cataloguing at the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg where I've established an open access policy as part of the museums evolving digital strategy. In my role I focus on how to boost the value of digital collections and make them not only accessible as easy as possible but also reusable for scientific, innovative or creative purposes.
