About Me

Sebastian Karcher portraitI am the Associate Director of the Qualitative Data Repository at Syracuse University. I work on all aspects of the repository, but am particularly interested in qualitative data management and the development of scholarly workflows. I hold a PhD in political science from Northwestern, where my substantive interests center around the political economy of business/labor relations in the Industrialized world as well as issues of conceptualization and measurement in political economy.

As time permits, I am an active contributor to several scholarly open source software projects, including in particular Zotero, where I help oversee the site translators, and the Citation Style Language, where I am on the board and co-maintain the style repository.
