I am a research associate at the Knowledge Media Institute (KMi) based in The Open University in Milton Keynes. I have joined KMi as a PhD student in 2005 and graduated in 2010. The main topic of my PhD thesis was Semantic Web data integration, in particular, in the domain of Linked Data. Currently I am working in the SmartProducts project. In this project, I am developing ontologies modelling various types of data needed by smart products as well as continuing my research on semantic data integration. Before joining KMi, I received my bachelor degree in Computer Science from Kharkov National University of Radioelectronics in 2002 and my MSc degree in AI from Free University of Amsterdam in 2004.
