Computer Science-Information Systems Researcher. Open Source Advocate, Technical Article Writer. As part of my major career milestones, I have participated in European Projects as a team leader and in European project proposals and participated in state-of-the-art research projects.

My main research interests include the definition of Next-Generation Intelligent Web, Federated Search With Semantic Web Databases and Repositories and Enterprise Knowledge graphs. My main goal and philosophy is that the future Web should simulate collective intelligence in the form of distributed repositories.

I have been always an early adopter of state-of-the-art proof-of-concept research.
