Currently I am REEEP's COO and Director of the "Open Knowledge Programme" of REEEP. This includes the management of the “Climate Knowledge Brokers Group” (a group of more than 150 leading knowledge brokers in the international climate sector) as well as REEEP’s knowledge tools such as reegle.info (a leading linked open data clean energy information portal) and the Climate Tagger (a tool to automatically tag unstructured content and connect it with similar content on other websites). I also co-authored the books “Linked Open Data: The Essentials” and "The Climate Knowledge Brokers Manifesto" and am active in a consulting role in Open Data and Linked Open Data in the international development and climate change community.

I strongly believe that people can make climate sensitive decisions only if they are informed by the best available climate knowledge. Therefore principles such as "open knowledge", sharing and collaboration have to be the standards of our work as publishers and brokers of climate information.

Prior to joining REEEP, I worked as a Project Manager and Consultant for Siemens Austria, where I gained experience in managing inter-cultural projects, and founded a webdesign company in Austria.

I obtained a Masters Degree in IT-Management and a Bachelors Degree in Software Engineering from the Vienna University of Technology.
