About me

I am a Senior Lecturer in Computer Science, and an active researcher in the areas of Natural Language Processing, Knowledge Base Systems and Semantic Web Technologies. I have a long-term experience working in various research roles for medium and large scale European and UK research projects.  I hold a PhD on Semantic Indexing of Archaeological Grey Literature, I am a certified text analyst of the General Architecture for Text Engineering GATE, a fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA) and a member of the British Computing Society (BCS). My research on the semantic indexing of cultural heritage resources has received several awards including the outstanding paper award from the Emerald Literati Network.

Area of expertise

My main research interests are in Knowledge-Based Systems and Natural Language Processing, particularly in semantic annotation and metadata enrichment with respect to conceptual reference models, ontologies and knowledge base resources. I have contributed to the cultural heritage data modelling and semantic enrichment aims of the EU Horizon 2020 project Crosscult, whereas in the past I have contributed to the EU FP7 Ariadne Framework researching the multilingual application of Natural Language Processing in archaeological grey literature.
