My research topics are Knowledge Engineering & Semantic Web of Data. I have a special interest in Graph based Knowledge Representation, RDF/S, SPARQL. I designed a generic SPARQL interpreter, with extensions, called KGRAM that processes labeled graphs.

Currently, I work on SPARQL Template, a Transformation Language for RDF. It enables us to transform RDF abstract syntax trees such as OWL RDF to OWL functional syntax and SPIN to SPARQL as well as RDF to Turtle. It can also be used to set up Semantic Web servers.

A nice introduction to our research domain (in french): Web sémantique
