I am currently a Ph.D student in the School of Computer, in the University of Manchester, supervised by Robert Stevens and Alan Rector. The area I am working on is related with the comprehension and use of ontologies. In particular, my PhD topic is about the detection of syntactic regularities and patterns in OWL ontologies. I have also worked on metrics for analysing the design style of ontology repositories.

Before that, I worked as a Research Assistant for the European CASPAR project. My work there involved the use of standard ontologies for the preservation of Interactive Multimedia Performances. I have also acquired a BEng in Electrical and Computer Engineering, in the University of Patras and an MSc in Advanced Computer Science from the School of Computer, University of Manchester. My MSc dissertation was supervised by Alan Rector and it was related with the abstraction of the Foundation Model of Anatomy (FMA) ontology in OWL with the application of Ontology Design Patterns (ODP).

Apart from being a PhD student, I am also a mentor in the Computer Science department; a unique scheme in the University of Manchester. My role as a mentor is to help and support new PhD students. In the mentors team we also organise many events for PhD students like hiking trips, social dinners, academic events etc, which is great fun!
