Christine Buske

Christine joined Crossref in early 2018, initially focusing on all aspects of Event Data. Her career in scholarly technology started during the final stages of her PhD in Neuroscience at the University of Toronto. After earning her degree, she pursued a career in technology and product management at SpringerNature and Elsevier, contributing to the reference management products Papers and Mendeley, respectively. Her professional background prior to product management included scholarly outreach, marketing, and business development. Outside of her interests in scholarly communications, workflows, and data, Christine was passionate about traveling, wildlife photography, and was (re)learning salsa dancing. Sadly, Christine passed away in 2019. You can find a homage to her life in, In Memory of Christine Hone.

Event Data is production ready

We’ve been working on Event Data for some time now, and in the spirit of openness, much of that story has already been shared with the community. In fact, when I recently joined as Crossref’s Product Manager for Event Data, I jumped onto an already fast moving train—headed for a bright horizon.

Hello, meet Event Data Version 1, and new Product Manager

I joined Crossref only a few weeks ago, and have happily thrown myself into the world of Event Data as the service’s new product manager. In my first week, a lot of time was spent discussing the ins and outs of Event Data. This learning process made me very much feel like you might when you’ve just bought a house, and you’re studying the blueprints while also planning the house-warming party.
