My area of specialization is the use of semantic web technologies (especially biomedical ontologies) to assist in the collection, curation and maintenance of biomedical data. My particular focus is on the semantic web as a knowledge representation technology to allow automatic inferences. In addition to that I have an interest in general questions related to medical humanities, such as medical ethics. I also have a keen interest in formal logic and social ontologies. The biomedical areas in which I have worked so far are: oncology, pharmacy and pharmacology (drug-drug interactions), radiology, trauma care, pathology, biobanking.
