I am a Research Lecturer at the University of Oxford e-Research Centre, UK. My research focuses on developing methodologies and software tools for data science, including knowledge management and data analysis. I mainly deal with heterogeneous biological and biomedical data, within the context of the ISA infrastructure ( and the BioSharing initiative (, engaging with the communities developing standards supporting data sharing, re-use and science reproducibility and promoting their awareness and use. Before joining the University of Oxford, I was involved with the Computational and Systems Medicine project ( and the Department of Computer Science at University College London, collaborating, among others, with the National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI). Before that, I completed a PhD in Computer Science at Queen's University Belfast, and a Licentiateship, which would be equivalent to an MSc, in Computer Science at Universidad Nacional de Rosario, Argentina. I have been a member of the Cancer Research UK Stratified Medicine Programme Informatics Advisory Board, have worked as a consultant and I am available for discussing further consulting opportunities, do get in touch to discuss. I am co-chairing the Semantics, Analytics, Visualisation: Enhancing Scholarly Data (SAVE-SD 2016) that will be co-located with WWW2016. For more information, please see the workshop website: Specialties: software engineering, software development, ontologies/semantic web/linked data, data management, standards.
