About Me

I am a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the NICHE Research Group at Dalhousie University. I got my PhD in the Computer Science department of University of Alcala in Spain. My PhD thesis was about “Interlinking educational data to Web of Data”, in which I applied the Semantic Web technologies to interlink several eLearning datasets to the LOD cloud.

My research interests:

  • Linked Data
  • Semantic Web
  • eLearning Technologies
  • Health Informatics
  • Information System
