I work on the social, semantic web. My current main focus is my Ph. D. research at The Open University. My thesis is on "Peer Supported Problem Solving and Mathematical Knowledge", and I expect to earn my doctorate in December, 2012.
This research is developing in the context of PlanetMath.org, a popular community-created mathematics website run by the US-based nonprofit PlanetMath.org, Ltd. (where I serve on the board of directors). Technical work on this project is progressing in a partnership with the Knowledge Adaptation and Reasoning for Content (KWARC) group at Jacobs University, Bremen, Germany. My own focus within this project is "support for learners". I am bringing to bear a range of "semantic technologies" to enhance the peer learning experience on PlanetMath. I have also been developing a more general theory of peer learning and peer production, which I call "paragogy".
My supervisors at KMi are Alex Mikroyannidis and Peter Scott.
