I am a Research Associate at the Knowledge Media institute (KMi) of the Open University in Milton Keynes, UK. My research focuses on Semantic Web, Semantic Publishing, User Modelling, Data Mining and Human Computer Interaction. Currently, I am working on the Rexplore project (http://technologies.kmi.open.ac.uk/rexplore/) and on the MKSmart project (http://www.mksmart.org/).

I am the main developer of Rexplore, a system which leverages novel solutions in large-scale data mining, semantic technologies and visual analytics, to provide an innovative environment for exploring and making sense of scholarly data.

For the MKSmart Project, I am working on the Garden Monitor, a mobile application which supports efficient water management in gardens (http://www.mksmart.org/gardenmonitor/).

Keys: Semantic Web, Semantic Publishing, Data Mining, User Modelling, Knowledge Extraction, Ontologies, Scholarly Data.
