Profile

Personal statement

I have been working for the Open Education Consortium (former OCW Consortium) since 2010 as an Operations Manager and Open Education Specialist, advocating for openness in education and supporting education institutions and organizations around the world in advancing the openness agenda. Since 2007, I have also participated in numerous national & international research projects, focusing on openness in education, either as a researcher or a coordinator.
