About Me

I am a PhD student at the University of Cape Town, in the Computer Science department. My supervisor is C. Maria Keet. My research topic is on natural language and Semantic Web technologies.

I have an MPhil Digital Curation (with distinction) from the Department of Knowledge and Information Stewardship, also at UCT. My supervisor was Richard Higgs. My research title was "The construction of a linguistic linked data framework for bilingual lexicographic resources" and I used a little-known dictionary in the public domain, The English-Xhosa Dictionary for Nurses, as the case study.

I have developed two language resources (in collaboration with others):

  • Language Tags for the Multilingual Semantic Web (go there)
  • MoLA (Model for Language Annotation) (go there)
