Sarah Hutton joins the team

October 19, 2022

The IOP Alliance (IOPA) is delighted to announce the recruitment of Sarah Hutton as Research and Community Engagement Lead. Sarah’s work, generously funded by an Alfred P. Sloan Exploratory Grant, is focused on developing a thematic community around the People and Skills specifications necessary in distributed manufacturing.

Sarah brings with her the network and experience in open hardware, makerspaces and fabrication; as a librarian and qualitative researcher in open knowledge production and an instructor in setting-up and teaching in maker spaces, Sarah has a unique intersection of experiences and skills. Her experience in community and shared governance models in consortia, open publishing and data standards, as well as human-centered research, will also support increasing community engagement surrounding existing IoPA artifacts and initiatives, such as OKH and OKW.

Please join the IoPA in welcoming Sarah to the team in this new role!
