I am a researcher interested in topics including Computational Linguistics, Information Retrieval and Digital Libraries. I am also an Open Access enthusiast - believing in free access to knowledge for everybody. I acknowledge the necessity of migrating towards better research practices and criticise narrow-minded methods for evaluating research excellence.

I have been involved as a researcher and as a PI in a number of European Commission, national and international funded research projects. I am the founder of the CORE system and have worked as the lead architect, developer and manager for the CORE family of projects.

Keys: Text Mining, Information Retrieval, Automatic Link Discovery, Aggregations, Big Data and Cloud Computing, Open Science, Open Access
