An Interview with Maurizio Toscano

Maurizio Toscano, digital humanities researcher at the University of Granada (Spain) helps humanities researchers implement DH methods and practices and collaborates with public and private institutions.

His research interests include Digital Public History, Data modelling and GIS. His current doctoral research focuses on Web Information Systems for research in History, History of Arts and Archaeology.

Maurizio has participated in several FP7 and H2020 projects (MEMOLA, REACH, DESIR) as partner coordinator and work package leader. Since 2019, he is a member of the Board of Directors of Asociación de Humanidades Digitales Hispánicas.

"My biggest challenge is understanding whether a specific tool matches a user’s requirements and use case. Next is to find out if it’s well supported and if, in the long run, it’s worth investing in learning it. To date I’ve relied on standard Google searches rather than searching specific repositories. I’m very hopeful that the SSH Open Marketplace will change that."
