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 worked (part-time) as all-round coordinator of several new academic collaborations / initiatives. In that capacity I became responsible for managing the development and content of a number of websites (while also getting a PhD and doing two postdocs). In those early cases I still worked with external web designers/developers, of course 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) and with my interdisciplinary background (comprising philosophy, the social sciences & engineering) I understand what kind of site scholars need.
