Michel Dumontier
Associate Professor of Bioinformatics in the Department of Biology, the
Institute of Biochemistry and School of Computer Science at Carleton
University (Ottawa, Canada)
Co-Chair for the World Wide Web Consortium Semantic Web in Health Care and
Life Sciences Interest Group (W3C HCLSIG)

Dr. Michel Dumontier's research aims to develop semantics-powered
computational methods to increase our understanding of how living systems
respond to chemical agents. At the core of the research program is the
development and use of Semantic Web technologies to formally represent and
reason about data and services so as (1) to facilitate the publishing,
sharing and discovery of scientific knowledge produced by individuals and
small collectives, (2) to enable the formulation and evaluation scientific
hypotheses using our collective tools and knowledge and (3) to create and
make available computational methods to investigate the structure, function
and behaviour of living systems. Dr. Dumontier is the lead developer for
the Semanticscience Integrated Ontology (SIO), which has been used to
integrate data for the open-source Bio2RDF linked data for life sciences
project and SADI semantic web services. He currently serves as an editor
for the open-review Semantic Web Journal, and co-chairs the ISMB-affiliated
Bio-Ontologies Special Interest Group and is a co-chair for the 2013
Semantic Trilogy  (see
http://www.unbsj.ca/sase/csas/data/semantic-trilogy-2013/) consisting of
the International Conference on Biomedical Ontology (ICBO), the Canadian
Semantic Working Symposium (CSWS) and Data Integration in the Life Sciences
(DILS). More information about him and his research can be found at
