My research spans a variety of aspects related to semantic technologies and knowledge engineering, including ontology engineering, semantic web, knowledge-intensive problem solving, interfaces to knowledge-based systems, question answering, intelligent data integration, semantic search, and foundational issues. Consistently with the ethos of the Knowledge Media Institute practically all my projects focus on concrete user-centric functionalities, developed through scalable solutions, which typically integrate semantic and other technologies, such as computational linguistics and machine learning.

Linking University Content for Education and Research Online
I chair the NeOn Technologies Foundation (NTF), a nonprofit organization responsible for the management and distribution of the NeOn Toolkit (NTK), as well as other technologies originally developed as part of the NeOn Project. The NTF aims to gather together those individuals and organizations interested in using or further developing NeOn Technologies for the purpose of co-ordinating development activities, dissemination, and training events..
