Hi!

I am a postdoctoral scholar here at the Knowledge-Based Systems group led by Prof. Dr. Markus Krötzsch. Broadly speaking, I am interested in the definition and implementation of reasoning algorithms for Description Logics and Existential Rules, and the use and application of Semantic Technologies in different domains.

A bit about my academic career: I completed my master's and doctor's degrees at Wright State University, both under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Pascal Hitzler, in 2012 and 2016, respectively. For a couple months at the beginning of my Ph.D., I was an exchange student at the University of Oxford, working under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Bernardo Cuenca Grau.
