I am a Member of Technical Staff at Bell Labs Ireland where I do research in the Semantic Data Access group. We are investigating the potential roles for semantics in telecommunication networks/applications and developing ways of enabling/simplifying its general use by application/service developers. As such we are concerned with fostering the ease of use of RDF/RDF-S/OWL while ensuring the formal soundness of their semantics.
My personal interests relevant to this group are in the areas of client-side semantics (particularly JSON-RDF), restrictive reasoning (subsets of RDF-S/OWL semantics), OWL 2 RL and telecom ontologies & use cases. Prior to joining Bell Labs in Oct 2010, I was CTO at VIStology, Inc. a semantic technology R&D firm in Boston, MA.
