With academic and professional backgrounds in engineering materials research and software development respectively, my tasks at the European Commission are now focused on data acquisition, transfer, and analysis in the domain of energy research. Specifically in the context of engineering materials data, I am technical lead of a 2-year CEN Workshop on Standards for Electronic Reporting in the Engineering Sector (CEN/WS SERES) and project lead for the Online Data and Information Network (ODIN) portal hosted at the European Commission JRC Institute for Energy and Transport. As well as delivering basic data management services to the European research community, the ODIN portal is enabled for the CEN/WS SERES technologies and data citation using DataCite DOIs, which makes it an excellent platform for evaluating emerging technologies in the domain of engineering materials data and data publishing.
