Torsten Reimer

In my current role at Imperial College London I am responsible for Open Access and Research Data Management. Working with the College's OA and RDM boards, I help shape the strategy for open scholarlship and oversee its implementation. I chair the Symplectic Open Access Special Interest Group and I host the London Open Access Network. Currently, I also manage the roll-out of the ORCID researcher identifier across the university.

Before joining Imperial, I was a programme manager at Jisc (a charity delivering digital services for education and research), where I specialised on digital infrastructure, tools and methods for research (incl. cloud/grid computing, text mining and social media analysis, scholarly communication and data curation).

My background is in e-research and digital humanities, and I have work experience in libraries, media, publishing and the software industry. Past employers and clients include: King's College London, the Bavarian State Library, the University of Munich, a large software company and a publisher.

I advise the UK's Arts and Humanities Research Council as a member of the Digital Transformations advisory group and I am a member of both the editorial board of DHCommons and the associations in the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO).

In addition, I am a member of ARMA, the Association of Research Managers and Administrators, and one of the 2015 Fellows of the Software Sustainability Institute.
