A Short Web-Related Bio
In 2005 I became responsible for the website of a tiny NGO where I was hired as the only employee. The rudimentary site needed urgent work, but I did not have any budget for it. So I had to figure out how to do it myself – fortunately I could rely on the technical skills and generous help of my husband. I found it interesting and rewarding work. In the decade after that I was responsible for managing the development and content of a number of sites, in the (part-time) capacity of all-round coordinator of several new academic initiatives (while also getting a PhD and doing two postdocs). In those early cases I still worked with external web designers/developers, meanwhile developing my own knowledge and skills in the process.
With more than 10 years of experience in academia both as a researcher and in administrative positions I understand what kind of site scholars need.
