Semantic music, Linked Data APIs, Digital Humanities on the Web

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Knowledge Representation & Reasoning Group of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. I investigate the integration of and access to diverse types of knowledge, with a special interest in Digital Humanities data and workflows. I am interested in knowledge graphs, Linked Data, Web query languages, and APIs.

Current projects

  • The MIDI Linked Data Cloud, a Linked Data representation of digital music in MIDI format containing 350K songs and 10B triples
  • grlc, a service that transforms GitHub repositories with SPARQL queries into Linked Data APIs automatically

Past projects

  • TabLinker, a framework for integrating messy spreadsheet collections into fully fledged RDF Data Cube (example result here)
  • LSD Dimensions, an aggregator of statistical dimensions and Data Structure Definitions in use in public SPARQL endpoints
  • Linked Edit Rules, the hub for publishing edit rules (data quality checkers) as Linked Data
  • SCRY, a lightweight SPARQL endpoint with customizable, standard-compliant and implementation-independent functions
