Julien A. Raemy works as a Project Assistant and PhD Candidate at the Digital Humanities Lab of the University of Basel as well as Interoperability Specialist for DaSCH - Swiss National Data and Service Center for the Humanities. Within the Participatory Knowledge Practices in Analogue and Digital Image Archives (PIA) research project, he is involved in the extension of the data infrastructure, the uptake of the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) as well as designing the data model. He obtained a BSc (2017) and a MSc in Information Science (2020) from the Haute école de gestion de Genève (HEG-GE). He previously worked as a Research and Teaching Assistant in Information Science at the HEG-GE (2017-2021), as IIIF Systems Architect for the Swiss Art Research Infrastructure (SARI) coordinated at the University of Zürich (2020) as well as Photo Archivist at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in the context of the Montreux Jazz Digital Project (2015-2017). Furthermore, he is a member of the IIIF Technical Review Committee and the IIIF Coordinating Committee as well as being an active member of the Archival Resource Key (ARK) Alliance.

He is particularly interested in ways of improving the digital preservation, dissemination and interoperability of cultural heritage objects and their associated metadata through the application of Linked Open Data (LOD). He also investigates digital practices from the perspective of Science and Technology Studies, especially through the lens of the Actor-Network Theory (ANT).
