About Me


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 Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (KRR), Machine Learning and Mobile Computing applied to Health Informatics. In particular, this includes expressive rule-and ontology-based reasoning applied to clinical decision support; with a focus on how these approaches can benefit from mobile deployment.
