Tell us a bit about your background…

What is your role in the READ project?
Connecting the world of (digital) archives and scholars with the possibilities offered by READ.
What is top of your to-do list at the moment?
Evaluating models trained for Handwritten Text Recognition, scaling tests using material from the archives and contacting interested parties to tell them about READ and the Transkribus tool.
What do you like best about working on READ?
Getting to work on a regular basis with people with different backgrounds and diverse research interests.
If you could do another job for just one day, what would it be?
President of the United States (if it’s similar to House of Cards!)
