About Me

william
I am currently a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the NICHE Research Group at Dalhousie University. Previously, I was a teaching assistant for 6 years at the WISE Research Lab at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. I finished my PhD dissertation, titled “Mobile, client-side context-provisioning via the integrated querying of online semantic web data”, to obtain the degree of Doctor in Sciences in 2013.

Research Interests

My research interests lie at the crossroads of Semantic Web technology, healthcare and mobile computing. In particular, this includes expressive rule-and ontology-based reasoning applied to clinical decision support, and materialized and virtual data integration; with a potential focus on how these approaches can benefit from mobile deployment.

Miscellaneous

The idea is to have here a list of my non-academic interests.

A lifetime ago I developed a few websites. You can find them here:

  • BeersFromBelgium.eu: a Web 2.0 website with a huge database on Belgian beers. Users can keep a list of tasted and to-taste beers, get beers recommended based on their beer preferences, and add/edit existing beers.
  • VW Heaters: a webshop for both professional and household heating equipment.
  • VW Cleaners: a webshop for┬áindustrial and professional cleaning equipment, including vacuum cleaners, pressure washers and the like.
