Academic interests

Evgeny does AI-centered research with a particular focus on how knowledge (semantics) can enhance access and analyses of data. His work is motivated by and it is applied to the context of Industry 4.0, Knowledge Graphs, and Semantic Web. In particular, he has been working on ontology-based data access; knowledge graph construction, learning, querying, exploration, evolution, and quality management; as well as knowledge driven industrial (equipment) modelling and diagnostics.

Evgeny is an Associate Professor at the University of Oslo and a Research Scientist at the Bosch Centre for Artificial Intelligence. He previously was a Senior Research Fellow at the University of Oxford, a visiting researcher at the Universities of Oxford and Edinburgh and a researcher at the University of Bolzano and INRIA Saclay. 

Evgeny's work led to 100+ publications at conferences and journals including such top tier as TODS, PVLDB, JCSS, JWS, JSW, IJCAI, AAAI, CIKM, and ISWC. His work on semantic equipment diagnostics won the best in-use paper award at ISWC'17, on industrial model management was a runner-up at ISWC'16, and on semantic access to Siemens turbine data won the best demo at ISWC'15.

Evgeny played a leading role in Oxford's participation in a large scale EU funded Optique project on end-user oriented access to industrial Big Data. He was one of the co-authors and a research co-investigator of the EPSRC grant on data analytics and the PI on several projects including an industry-funded with Siemens Corporate Technology on semantic diagnostics of complex industrial production systems and on analytics and model management.
