Short Bio

My official job title is "Senior Project Officer" which doesn't tell you much. I spend my time working on project THOR as developer, researcher and comms person. THOR is an EC funded persistent identifiers project that aims to increase uptake of identifiers for people, places and things.

What this means in practice is that I gather requirements, write proposals and modify the ORCID registry to ensure it works well with other identifier based systems.

Interest in LODLAM

The ORCID registry has a 'basic' LOD implementation that speaks RDF xml, turtle and a few other dialects. Our initial LOD implementation was kindly donated by the community and although useful, doesn't get as much traffic as we'd hope. I'm interested in moving towards a lighter weight method of exposing our data in the future, including mapping to schema.org and embedding it within the landing pages.
