I am a senior research fellow at the Knowledge Media institute (KMi) of the Open University in Milton Keynes, UK. The major common point between all my research activities is the Semantic Web, and especially methods and tools to build intelligent applications relying on formalised knowledge distributed online. I have especially been involved in the development of the Watson Semantic Web search engine, and in many applications of its APIs.

As part of several projects, I have worked on many aspects of building and exploiting the Semantic Web, including ontology building, ontology modularization, ontology matching, ontology evolution, ontology publication, etc. More recently, I have been working on aspects related to the use of semantic technologies and the Semantic Web for monitoring and managing online personal information, as well to the realisation of applications producing and consuming linked data. As part of MK:Smart, I'm leading the development of the MK Data Hub infrastructure for data curation, management and analysis.
