My research interests include knowledge representation, ontologies and ontology languages, modal and description logics, automated reasoning, implementation and optimisation of reasoning systems, and applications in areas such as e-Science and the Semantic Web.
You might be interested in An Introduction to Description Logics, a newly published book that I co-authored (with Franz Baader, Carsten Lutz and Uli Sattler). A complete list of my publications, along with downloadable pdfs. Lists of selected, recent, and most-cited publications are also available. If you are a glutton for punishment you could also look at my Google Citations profile, or my DBLP entry.
Tools & Datasets
The group has developed many tools , including, e.g., HermiT , a highly optimised OWL 2 reasoner, ELK , a consequence based OWL 2 EL reasoner, PAGOdA , a pay-as-you-go OWL 2 query answering system, RDFox , a highly scalable RDF triple store, and SemFacet , a semantic faceted search system. We also maintain a library of ontologies and datasets .
Doctoral Study in Computer Science
Students working towards their D.Phil (PhD) are an integral part of the Information Systems Group, and make a vital contribution to our research. We currently have a fully funded studentship available to work on our RDFox triple store project. This is in addition to As a result of a generous donation from Google, we currently have a number of fully funded studentships available in addition to our usual range of studentships and other scholarships . See our studentships page for further details, and information about other funding opportunities .
