I am a Research Fellow at the Governance, Risk and Compliance Technology Centre (GRCTC) hosted by the Department of Accounting, Finance and Information Systems at University College Cork - Ireland. My applied research focuses on the use of Semantic Technologies in Complex Information Systems and particularly for Governance, Risk and Compliance in Financial Services.    (40L1)

In this role, I lead a multidisciplinary research team in designing and building an SBVR-based Semantic Repository and several ontologies for Regulatory and GRC spaces. I am an active member of the Object Management Group Financial Domain Task Force, the SMART Regulation Initiative (joint effort by OMG and the Data Transparency Coalition) and a voting member of the SBVR 1.2 RTF. I support the Enterprise Data Management Council efforts for data standards in Financial Services and in particular the Financial Services Business Ontology (FIBO). I also engage in related research on the use of Semantic Technologies to support a swap dealer activities in collaboration with a major financial services organization.    (40L2)

My professional activities also include Consulting (Business Process Modelling, Business Process Optimization and Adaptability, Knowledge Modelling and GRC), Software Engineering (N-tier Architectures and Web Technologies) and Teaching (undergraduate and graduate level).    (40L3)
