Postdoctorate Research Assistant

Interests

My research interests reside in Knowledge Representation and Knowledge Management areas. In particular, I am interested in Semantic Web technologies evaluation and their knowledge management applications. I have participated in development of techniques, algorithms and tools for knowledge intensive applications. In particular I developed S-Match, a lightweight ontology matching system and a method for matching systems evaluation.

Biography

In March of 2003 I joined University of Trento Data & Knowledge Management research group as Research Assistant. In November of 2003 I joined Information and Telecommunication Technologies International Doctoral School in Trento where I completed my doctoral research on knowledge management systems and techniques for their large scale evaluation. In March 2008 I defended my PhD dissertation. After short term postdoctoral assignments at University of Trento and University of Rennes I joined the Department of Computer Science at the University of Oxford as a Postdoctoral Research Assistant. I am a member of the Information Systems group led by Prof. Georg Gottlob and Prof. Ian Horrocks.
