My primary research interests lie in the area of neural-symbolic AI, especially knowledge representation (KR) and natural language processing (NLP). In my PhD (DPhil), I have been working on adapting language models (LMs) to a range of ontology engineering tasks including ontology alignment, completion, embeddings, and more. I am also interested in geometric embeddings and their use in addressing the limitations of LMs and representing logics.

I have been actively developing and maintaining DeepOnto, a Python package for ontology engineering with deep learning and particularly LMs.


Hi! I am Yuan He (in Chinese: 何源), a PhD candidate in Computer Science supervised by Professor Ian Horrocks,Professor Bernardo Cuenca Grau, and Dr Jiaoyan Chen at the University of Oxford. 

Before my PhD, I took my undergraduate study at the University of Edinburgh and attained the best performance prize for the BSc (Hons) AI & Maths degree. My final year project supervised by Dr Shay B. Cohen has led to a publication about machine transliteration.
