Paul Warren successfully defended his thesis on 13th July 2017. The title of Paul's thesis was "Human Reasoning and Description Logics: Applying Psychological Theory to Understand and Improve the Usability of Description Logics". The examiners were Dr. Gem Stapleton (University of Brighton) and Prof. Marian Petre (Computing and Communications).

A key contribution of the thesis was the way in which psychological theories were applied, over a series of empirical studies, in order to identify the difficulties people have with Description Logics and propose ways of alleviating them. Paul undertook his PhD studies on a part time basis and published findings from the thesis in the EKAW, SEMANTICS and ESWC conferences.
