Hello, I specialise in the application of semantic web technologies to
grid computing, i.e. "semantic grid" (see www.semanticgrid.org)  This
means applying semantic web both *on* the grid (i.e. in grid applications)
but also *in* the grid, i.e. in the grid middleware.  Since grid computing
is increasingly service-oriented, many semantic grid projects are already
exercising the available semantic web machinery for description, discovery
and composition of web services.  I'm a W3C AC rep and was an "alternate"
on Webont, and I chair the Semantic Grid Research Group in the Global Grid
Forum.  I'm also responsible for some pervasive computing research, which
again involves service description, discovery and composition - plus some
rather different ontologies and a bunch of engineering issues to do with
working in real time.
