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.
