I am a computer scientist, working in social and semantic computing. Since 2003, I have been helping to build semantic web prototypes for biodiversity informatics, with a focus on occurrence data, citizen science, and invasive species.

I am particularly interested in data interoperability, semantic web, social computing, biodiversity, citizen science, invasive species, genomics and metagenomics.
