Dr. George Bruseker is coordinator of the Centre for Cultural Informatics (a part of ICS-FORTH) which conducts research in digital humanities with a particular focus on conceptual modelling and the use of semantic techniques for advanced data integration and research. His formation is in philosophy having earned his PhD in Philosophy from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (Greece) in ancient Greek philosophy, his MA from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (Belgium) and his BA from the University of Alberta (Canada). He has worked in the field of information management for cultural heritage for over a decade, having worked as IT Officer for the British School at Athens (Greece) and Qatar Museums organizing large-scale collections’ information management projects. In 2015, he took up a position as Experienced Researcher in the Marie Curie ITN-Digital Cultural Heritage Project working on the question of establishing provenance documentation for 3D models. At present he works in the Parthenos project, a European cluster project, looking at best practices for research infrastructures. He is co-chair of the Data for History Consortium and participates in various semantic working groups including the CIDOC CRM Special Interest Group, the Arches Resource Modelling Working Group and the Linked Art consortium. His research interests are in the development of methodologies and tools for enabling sustainable semantic data lifecycles for research, methodology of conceptual modelling and formal ontology construction and maintenance, pedagogical techniques for semantic data and the modelling of historical and architectural data.
