My research is in the broad field of artificial intelligence. In particular, my work revolves around the areas of knowledge representation and reasoning, knowledge graphs, computational logic, semantic technologies, and their applications to data management and the Web. My activities within these areas cover a wide spectrum, including theory and foundations, algorithm design, software and systems, technology standards, and engagement with industry.

I am a professor at the Department of Computer Science and a Tutorial Fellow at Keble College.  Until October 2017, I held a prestigious University Research Fellowship awarded by the British Royal Society.  I am a co-founder of Oxford Semantic Technologies , a start-up company from the University of Oxford focusing on high-performance reasoning and query evaluation over large-scale knowledge graphs.
