Research

Main research interest: My research is focused on developing and testing ontologies for classifying and querying biological data and ontological methods for making data interoperable. Ontology-based search allows one to exploit the logical definitions and relations between entities and thereby infer additional information. I am particularly interested in using anatomy ontologies for translational research to link human diseases to model organism data.

Present Focus: Most recently I have been working on representation of research resources and their integration into the Linked Open Data landscape.
