Jeremy Debattista
Research Fellow, ADAPT

Biography

Dr Jeremy Debattista is a research fellow in the Knowledge and Data Engineering Group and ADAPT Centre. He holds a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Bonn. His thesis addressed data quality issues in Linked Data, looking at techniques to efficiently assess large linked datasets and modelling of quality metadata. This work was mostly disseminated in the EU ICT-FP7 funded project DIACHRON. The main research interests are on data quality, Big Data for the Semantic Web, and data management. He received his B.Sc in Computer Science and AI from the University of Malta. Jeremy worked at the Digital Enterprise Research Institute (DERI, Galway) where he successfully achieved his Masters in Applied Science (M.App Sc) from the National University of Ireland Galway (NUIG) for his work related to the Digital.Me EU ICT-FP7 funded project. Jeremy has experience in software engineering and programming. Jeremy was one of the main and active contributors in a recent W3C Data Quality standardization vocabulary (https://www.w3.org/TR/vocab-dqv/). He published a number of journal and conference publications in the field of Linked Data quality. Currently, Jeremy is the co-organiser of the MEPDaW series workshop (Managing the Evolution and Preservation of the Data Web) at the European Semantic Web Conference and has been a reviewer and committee member for a number of scientific events. Furthermore, Jeremy participated in various international and industrial projects with the focus being data quality and semantic technologies in various big data scenarios. In October 2017, Jeremy was awarded an IRC research fellowship for two years with a project titled "An Intelligent Data Quality Centric Recommender System". In this fellowship, Jeremy is exploring different routes towards assisting data consumers to find fit for use dataset by recommending the most suitable quality metrics for the task at hand.
