Paula Granados is the Digital and Operations Manager of the EMKP. She leads the digital vision and implementation of the programme, including digital preservation and curation of ethnographic resources, training, and advocacy for the work of EMKP and the Museum through research and dissemination. She looks after the programme’s development and compliance with digital and ethical best practices and manages the operational side of the programme on a day-to-day basis.
Paula received her Ph.D. in archaeological research and Linked Open Data from the Open University in 2020. Her research focuses on the intersection between Digital Humanities and Cultural Heritage, by looking at how digital technologies can help individuals access, share, and build upon archaeological and ethnographic knowledge in different interdisciplinary streams: data and knowledge modelling via Linked Open Data technologies, the creation and mediation of knowledge in museums, and collaborative curation of cultural heritage initiatives through digital media and experimental technologies. She is also interested in the application of ethical research to the use of digital technologies, especially concerning intellectual property rights, environmental sustainability, and accessibility.
Paula currently holds a Visiting Research Fellowship at the Digital Humanities Research Hub, School of Advanced Study, University of London. She is Digital Repository Advisor for the GCRF Network+ grant ‘Imagining Futures through Un/archived Pasts’ at the University of Exeter and she is a member of the Steering Committee of the Linked Pasts Symposium and the Advisory Board for the InDIGenius Languages and Digital Technology Initiative.
