Projects


  • Linked Earth: EarthCube-funded project aiming to better organize and share Earth Science data, especially paleoclimate data. My role consists on helping domain scientist to define models for integrating their data in the paleoclimate sciences. The Linked Earth wiki is the environment for collaboratively describing their datasets and refining their models.

  • DISK: Automated DIscovery of Scientific Knowledge: Project that aims to automate the hypothesize-test-evaluate discovery cycle with an intelligent system that a scientist can task with lines of inquiry to test hypotheses of interest. My role in this projects consists on helping designing a model for representing hypothesis and their evolution, as well as presenting the results of the workflows to the user.

  • Otalex: Project aimed to convert the data from the Otalex atlas to a more structured format, publishing them according to the Linked Data principles. My role consisted in doing the modeling of the data, along with the visualization and linking to other Linked Data sources (mainly DBpedia and Geolinkeddata).

  • Wf4Ever: project designed to develop a software architecture for the preservation and efficient retrieval and reuse of digital libraries of scientific workflows, addressing some of the biggest challenges standing in data-intensive Science:
    1. Modeling of the executable experiments as digital objects (Research Objects)
    2. Management, access, reuse, sharing and evolution of these digital objects.
    In this project UPM leads a work package on workflow evolution, sharing and collaboration. My particular role is related to the discussion of the provenance model used for the representation of scientific experiments, the construction of a provenance corpus derived from the workflow templates and its analysis in order to create abstractions over the traces.

  • Web N+1: the goal of this project was the development of applications that allow users the capability to capture, manage, search and interact with the contents produced in a travel scenario by combining tools from Semantic Web with tools from the Social Web upon the base of the new concept of Web 3.0. My role in this project was focused on modeling the provenance of the information in a news and blogs scenario in order to be able to exploit it efficiently. A demo exploiting the results can be seen here (October 2009- 2011).

  • Keteke: Telefonica's R+D attempt to develop a competitive social network including mobile technologies. My role in the project was to develop the client application for Iphone terminals (January 2009, August 2009).
