Torsten Reimer

Currently I manage Open Access at Imperial College London where I also work on research data management activities. Over the past few years as a programme manager at Jisc (the UK's expert on digital technologies for education and research), I have focussed on digital infrastructure, tools and methods for research, and related policy issues and areas such as text mining, cloud/grid computing, impact assessment and software and innovation.

With a background in e-research and digital humanities I have extensive experience with interdisciplinary work and also engaging with the sciences. I have work experience in libraries, media, publishing and the software industry - employers and clients include: King's College London, the Bavarian State Library, the University of Munich and Microsoft.

I am a member of ARMA, the Association of Research Managers and Administrators, sit on the advisory group of the Digital Transformations theme of the Arts and Humanities Research Council and am a member of the editorial board of DHCommons.

At Imperial College, I have just stated a blog about scholarly communication and digital scholarlship. I also manage a project to roll out the ORCID identifier across the university.
