I am a PhD Student at Insight Centre for Data Analytics @ NUI Galway. I am working in the Unit for Natural Language Processing (UNLP) under supervision of Dr. Paul Buitelaar and Dr. John McCrae . I participate in MixedEmotion project , where I’m responsible for knowledge graph creation, but my main field of research is about Linked Data profiling and automated LD dataset classification. I analyse textual data from LD datasets and automatically identify topics that describe the dataset.
Additionally I work on updating and improving LOD cloud (http://lod-cloud.net/ ).
I received my bachelor degree in Latvia, Riga Technical University, my thesis was “Possibilities of Genetic algorithms in Multicriterial Optimization”. In 2009 I received my master degree in information technology, my thesis was “Public geographic information system portal development using Web 2.0
and semantic web technologies”. While studying for my master degree I worked in university as system administrator and teacher assistant. After finishing my master degree, I worked as a lecturer in Riga Technical University, where I was teaching class about cloud computing.
