Welcome

Welcome to the homepage of Christophe Debruyne. I am currently a lecturer and course director of the Bachelor in Applied Computer Science at University College Odisee. Before that, I was a Research Fellow affiliated with the ADAPT centre at Trinity College Dublin in the domain of Semantic Web and Linked Data. And before joining TCD, I was affiliated with both the Insight Centre for Data Analytics at NUI Galway and the Digital Repository of Ireland part of the Royal Irish Academy investigating Linked Data applications for the cultural heritage domain. From February 2014 to September 2016, I was also a part-time lecturer affiliated with the WISE Lab of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB), which is part of the Department of Computer Science of the Faculty of Science and Bio-engineering Sciences.

In 2013, I obtained a PhD in computer science with a dissertation entitled "Grounding Ontologies with Social Processes and Natural Language". In my thesis, I investigated the role of the exchange of natural language definitions of concepts (called glosses) in the social interactions that take place when a community of stakeholders is collaboratively constructing ontologies. I obtained a Bachelor in Applied Computer Science at Hogeschool Gent (University College Gent) in 2005, a BSc in Computer Science and a Msc in Applied Sciences and Engineering: Computer Science at the VUB in 2007 and 2009 respectively. I started working at STARLab as a developer in 2007. You can find more information about my education and work experience on my LinkedIn page.

My research interests include: Ontology Management, Ontology Engineering, Ontology Reuse, Ontology Languages (RDFS, OWL, etc.), Semantic Web and Linked Data. I'm also interested in the latest developments concerning Web 2.0.
