Person disambiguation in Dimensions is naturally conservative. This means that where there is any doubt about whether two name variants are the same people or not, we will not merge them, as we believe it is better to try and ensure that two people are not combined when they should not be, even if this means that a researcher has several records within Dimensions. The technology and data sources we are using to produce this person disambiguation are improving all the time.
