Ontologies

This page give an overview about my work with different ontologies in the life science domain.

I am one of the founders and major developers of the Human Phenotype Ontology. I also work a lot with the developers of the Mammalian Phenotype Ontology to improve cross species alignment between phenotype ontologies by means of machine learning (i.e. automated reasoning techniques). I am also responsible for creating the OWL representation of the zebra fish phenotypes provided by ZFIN, which is consumed by ontologies such as monarch.owl.
