About Me

I am passionate about the web and using semantic technologies to build out knowledge graphs over large distributed datasets, harvested from both cloud and enterprise data sources.

Most recently I was part of a cross-functional team that developed the SciGraph linked open data (LOD) platform from Springer Nature – a one billion facts dataset published to the LOD cloud.

Previously I led development on the Nature Publishing Group LOD data platform data.nature.com.

I've had wide experience of working on both sides of the scientific publishing information supply chain, from international research centres to leading academic publishing houses. My background is in physics with astrophysics, and in space sciences.
