Professional experience:

Project description: Conduct in-depth research in ontology development for determination of capital adequacy of credit institutions. Identify and extract relevant terms from Basel II and Irish statutory instrument documentation. Define meaning of relevant terms in collaboration with legal teams. Create XML-based dictionary covering relevant terms and implement XSLT transformations. Utilize description logics to encode Basel regulations. Implement balance sheet metamodel.

Project description: Development of tableau algorithm for an extension of SROIQ DL to support reasoning with composite structures.
