About Me

I am a PhD student at the University of Cape Town (UCT), in the Computer Science department. My supervisor is C. Maria Keet and my research topic is on multilingual ontologies.

I have an MPhil in Digital Curation (Cum Laude) 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)
