I'm concerned with the problem of Ontology Matching. This problem is about finding correspondences between elements (e.g. concepts or roles) of two ontologies covering the same or a similar domain. The matching process can be divided into two steps: First, a set of matching hypotheses is generated. Then, a subset of these hypotheses is chosen as final alignment. In my work I focus on several problems related to the second step. In particular, I suggest the use of logical reasoning to ensure the consistency of the final alignment.

With minor delays I finished my thesis in autumn 2011. You can take a look at it here. You can also download the software that I have been using in my thesis, called ALCOMO.

After a period of supervising PhD students that were working on very different topics, I'm now more heavily involved in teaching. Aside form this I try to apply some methods from Ontology Matching to the field of Business Process Matching.
