Torsten Reimer

In my current role at Imperial College London I am resonsible 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 across the university.

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, including areas such as text mining, cloud/grid computing, impact assessment and software & innovation.

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 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. I chair the Symplectic Open Access special interest group and I host the London Open Access Network. In addition, I am also one of the 2015 Fellows of the Software Sustainability Institute.

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