I'm a research associate at the CCLRC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, 
in the e-Science department. I was a participant in the Semantic Web 
Best Practices and Deployment Working Group, co-editing the SKOS 
Working Drafts [1,2,3] and the "Cookbook" for publishing RDF [4]. I've 
been involved in several projects, including Semantic Web Advanced 
Development for Europe (SWAD-Europe [5]) where I led the "Thesaurus 
Activity" [6]. I have an MA (Natural Sciences) from Cambridge 
University and an MSc (Web Technologies) from Oxford Brookes 
University (hopefully - results are out next month!), for which I 
recently published a dissertation on information retrieval using 
controlled vocabularies [7].

I am participating in the Semantic Web Deployment Working Group to 
help develop SKOS towards a genuinely useful and applicable 
Recommendation; and to continue the work on providing guidance on 
practical Semantic Web vocabulary management issues.
