My research focusses on the automatic extraction and exploitation of citation networks within journal papers in Classics. If this doesn’t mean anything to you, “I’m kinda building a Mendeley or CiteSeer for Classicists, you know? Just that you can use it to browse the citations between papers and ancient texts, that’s it”.
My research interests include: fragmentary texts in Classical literature, citation networks, ontology modelling and Semantic Web technologies. I love to collaborate to open source projects and to share my ideas and lines of code with the world. It’s a way to make them living.
My professional trajectory isÂ intrinsicallyÂ cross-disciplinary. But being asked to choose between Humanities and Technologies, I’ll pick the Technologies side. Indeed I feel this component being slightly predominant at the moment (let’s say, 55% Technologies and 45% Humanities). I love to spend more time working on ancient Greek, though!
