Presentation

I work with principles for terminologiocal concept analysis and the use of formal feature specifications for the representation of characteristics from terminology in order to automatize the process of ontology construction and definition writing.

Currently, most of my research lies within the project DanTermBank, which aims at creating the foundations for establishing a national term and knowledge bank by automatizing the data collection as much as possible (term extraction, knowledge extraction, ontology building and validation).

Former projects concerning formalization and exploitation of ontologies: SIABO and OntoQuery.

In ISO, the International Standards Organisation, I participate in the Technical Committee TC37 (Terminology and other Language Resources).

Finally, I am interested in various aspects of terminology in organisations, e.g. Process maturity, cost-benefit.
