Dirk Wintergrün

Research Scholar
Research Scholars are early career scholars who have ordinarily already had at least one postdoctoral fellowship or equivalent academic experience. This is the equivalent of an entry-level academic position (e.g. assistant professor in North America, Lecturer in the United Kingdom, Maître de conférences in France). These scholars carry considerable responsibilities (no more than 30% of their time) within their research unit.

Profile

My main focus is on developing, coordinating and managing digital projects which support research in the history of science.

I am involved in designing and implementing most of the current digital projects of the Max Planck Institute of the History of Science (which can be seen at the institutes homepage). My work covers design of databases, service development and more recently conceptual work on the structure of data and metadata for longterm accessibility and interoperability of databases as research outcomes in the history of science. A new field, which I am interested in, is the use of semantic modeling, network analysis and text mining tools to analyze historical data. I am also working in methods how to model historical processes utilizing semantic web standards like CRM. In this context I am working on a case studies in the context of the project on the History of the Max Planck Society and on the project of the administrative documents of the Opera Del Duomo.

I am researching the implication digital tools have on the work of the scholar in the field and which tools and skills are necessary for the optimal use of digital media in research.
