Personal Website: 

Scientific coordinator at Europeana.

Since December 2009, I work as scientific coordinator at Europeana, a unified access platform to digitized European Cultural Heritage, while keeping a research activity at the VU in Guus Schreiber's Web and Media group.

I have been recently working for the EuropeanaConnect project, and co-chairing the Library Linked Data group at W3C. I also serve as W3C SKOS community contact, on behalf of the now closed Semantic Web Deployment working group. 

I have worked in for the STITCH and TELplus and projects. I did during my PhD studies at the French National Institute for Audiovisual and Université Paris Sorbonne. Some research keywords will especially attract me:

Application of Semantic Web/Linked Data technology in the Cultural Heritage domain:

  • representation of metadata and controlled vocabularies, especially using SKOS
  • use of ontological mappings to access heterogeneous collections...

Semantic Web Languages and Technologies:

  • Description Logic-based languages, ontology mapping algorithms. I have co-organized the library thesaurus mapping task in the OAEI evaluation campaign.

Ontology Foundations:

  • Ontological Design Patterns, Formal and Core Ontologies...
