I've spent much of my career as a commercial software developer, working on a diverse applications including industrial process control, 3D motion capture, financial trading systems, engineering design and computer networking.
My current interests revolve around Semantic Web/Linked Data and Research Data Management. Over the past 10 years or so, I've worked on data management projects in the Zoology department and the e-Research Centre at the University of Oxford, dealing with topics from bioinformatics to classical arts. Before and during that time, I contributed to Internet (IETF) and Web (W3C) standards relating to email, content negotiation, Semantic Web (RDF), and Provenance.
