Project Supervision

I'm happy to (co)supervise internal or external MSc and PhD students in Semantic Web related topics. Please send me an email if you wish to discuss a research topic with me.

MSc project proposals 2017

Suggested topics but not limited to:

Academic interests

My research has covered several areas, including bio-medical information processing and integration, ontology reuse, ontology versioning and evolution, ontology alignment, and text mining. I have also designed novel algorithmic techniques and developed java-based tools to serve as a proof of concept of the conducted theoretical research.


Short bio

I got the doctor degree with honors in Computer Science from the University Jaume I of Castellon (Spain) under the supervision of Dr. Rafael Berlanga Llavori (University Jaume I) and Dr. Bernardo Cuenca Grau (University of Oxford). The Jaume I University awarded a Premio extraordinario de doctorado (roughly translated as a Extraordinary Doctoral Award) to my doctoral thesis (Engineering category 2010-2011). During my PhD I visited several leading institutions in the UK, including the Text Mining Group at the European Bio-informatics Institute in Cambridge; the Information Management Group at University of Manchester; and the Oxford University Computing Laboratory (now Department of Computer Science).

In January 2011, I joined the Information Systems group (University of Oxford, UK) led by Prof. Georg Gottlob and Prof. Ian Horrocks as a Research Assistant to work in the EPSRC project LogMap. Later in 2012 I worked as a researcher in the FP7 IP project Optique.

In May 2015 Alessandro Solimando, a PhD student from the University of Genoa I was co-supervising together with Prof. Giovana Guerrini, defended his thesis on "Change Management in the Traditional and Semantic Web"

In September 2016 I moved to Oslo to work as a researcher in the Centre for Scalable Data Access (SIRIUS) and the Logic and Intelligent Data (LogID) group led by Prof. Arild Waaler and Prof. Martin Giese, respectively.
