As a language technologist I have a passion for enabling communication across digital platforms. I pursue this interest by building the essential data foundations that enable the creation and interchange of visual language — in other words: scripts, ‘alphabets’, writing systems. For more than a decade, I have worked to expand Unicode, the international standard for the representation of writing systems on computers. My goal is that one day content in all languages and scripts of the world — past and present — will be just as accessible as the text you are reading now.

This git repository presents an overview of my Unicode projects; a bibliography of my script-encoding proposals; and details on the sources of funding that have supported my work. Notes I have compiled on various scripts are available in the blog.
