Christine Connors

It should come as no surprise that a young person who regularly read on the floor of their public library stacks and categorizing their own marginalia became fascinated with data and semantics. Christine found her way to a library and information science degree (MSLIS Simmons University) and then into corporate IT, with a great deal of help from the W3, the Semantic Technology Conference and an amazing network of smart colleagues along the way. Christine has a preference for wrangling unstructured and semi-structured data, champions Data Governance as a way to get to trusted quality data, and is the odd sort who likes building taxonomies and mapping exercises. In her spare time she indulges in old-school data management as a hobbyist bookbinder. She has over 20+ years experience with semantic technologies, primarily Frames, DL & KR based in discovery, access, analytics, and usability with experience in Aerospace-Defense, Publishing, Pharma, Finance, and High Tech.
