I am a researcher in the Web&Media group at the VU University Amsterdam. I investigate information systems that support users in modeling, linking and accessing data on the Web. In 2010 I finished my PhD at the centre Mathematics & Computer Science (CWI) in Amsterdam on interactive access to heterogeneous linked data.
Amalgame (AMsterdam ALignment GenerAtion MEtatool) is a tool for finding, evaluating and managing vocabulary alignments. We explicitly do not aim to produce 'yet another alignment method' but rather seek to combine existing matching techniques. Our goal is to support data providers, such as cultural heritage institutes, with the alignment of their own vocabularies.
