  • Ina is both information scientist and architect with membership in the German Chamber of Architects and project management experience in the field of knowledge-based, computational planning, design processes and  building information modeling. She holds a PhD in Information Science from the HU Berlin and is professor for Linked Data in Information Science at Hanover University of Applied Sciences and Arts (HsH). Ina carries out experimental research and development at the Open Science Lab of the German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB), preferably involving students, Wikimedia or other communities with dedication to free knowledge. As of 2023, she has established a Joint Lab “Future Libraries & Research Data” to further expand joint research of TIB and HsH. Her fields of interest are open, collaborative knowledge creation and its interplay with machine-based methods, information modeling and contextualization as well as decentralized approaches for knowledge and data, responsible applications and use of AI and the relationship between digitisation and the intersectional points of science and society. Ina has successfully raised third-party funding on projects for opening up and enriching digital 3D models and other audiovisual content, for collaborative knowledge creation and for linked open data on research information. She is co-spokesperson of the German national research data infrastructure project NFDI4Culture - Consortium for research data on material and immaterial cultural heritage and spokesperson of several third party funded projects in the field of openGLAM. Among other affiliations, she serves on EOSC task force Data stewardship curricula and career paths and Europeana tech steering group.
