Why and what i work on

Together with the team at IAS-9 and beyond I am working towards a culutral change on how research data is handled in science. Research schould be systematically documented, scientific data should be annotated with rich and FAIR metadata. I am specifically interested in methods and initiatives that aim at semantically aligning and harmonizing metadata and that link and represent data in large knowledge graphs (KGs).
