As an enthusiastic ontologist interested in ontology evaluation I have developed OOPS! (OntOlogy Pitfall Scanner!) that has been broadly accepted by a high number of users worldwide being used from around 60 different countries, integrated with third-party software and used in private enterprises. I am also interested in supporting ontological engineering activities in collaborative and distributed environments, for what I co-lead the development of OnToology, a Git-based system for ontology management. Regarding ontology standardization activities, I am involved in the development of the Web of Things vocabulary (W3C) and the SAREF ontology (European Telecommunication Standard Institute). Finally, another of my interests is ontology reuse, for what I collaborate with the Linked Open Vocabularies initiative and also reuse it for ongoing research purposes.

Some of the ontologies I have contributed to are (see latest developments at my GitHub profile):
- Web of Things and the VICINITY network (IoT domain)
- SAREF extensions for Buildings and Environment (IoT domain)
- Fair Reviews ontology (scientific reviews)
- Video Game ontology
- Loupe model (describing the statistics about the triples, vocabularies used, and common patterns observed in an RDF dataset)
