  • Ina is a trained architect with project management experience mainly in the field of knowledge-based, computational planning and design processes and building information modeling. She holds a PhD in Information Science from the HU Berlin, and since July 2019 she has been appointed as a professor at Hanover University of Applied Sciences and Arts (HsH), for the subject area "Linked Data in Information Science". Ina carries out experimental research and development at the Open Science Lab, preferably involving students, Wikimedia or other communities with dedication to free knowledge and open science. Her fields of interest are open, collaborative knowledge creation, 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 upening up and enriching digital 3D models and other audiovisual content, for collaborative knowledge creation and for linked open data on research information. She serves as program committee member and reviewer for various conferences and journals.
