I'm interested in trust and decentralisation on the Web, and the use of semantic technologies and distributed ledgers to improve privacy and individual control, and to support new ways of doing things. The Semantic Web and Linked Data platforms offer a great opportunity for standards-based applications to a wide variety of domains, and I have a particular interest in using such approaches to improve healthcare and education.
My background is in formal semantics and philosophy, and I am interested in the use of practical computing applications to feed back into theoretical advances, and vice versa.
