I am a Researcher/PhD student at the Faculty of Law of the University of 
Amsterdam where I am involved in a number of SemanticWeb / knowledge 
representation projects for the legal domain, a.o. in building legal 
ontologies and annotating legal texts. But don't worry, my background is 
in AI. If you were to put a label on me, you could call me an 
experienced user.

The recent developments on the OWL front have gotten me (us) really 
excited and I hope that this working group will deliver a more 
expressive and a little less scary and messy successor to OWL 1.0.

I expect to contribute primarily on the user/usability/readability end 
of things (case studies, documentation etc.), and am quite willing to 
debug other peoples writings. My/our interests lie at the interaction 
with RIF, the relation and combination with more annotation-like 
standards (such as RDF), and opening OWL up to a wide(r) public.

More information about me, and were I come from, can be found at [1] and 

I will most likely be able to attend the Manchester F2F in December.
