I am a member of the perl-rdf community, and author of many semantic-web Perl modules available on CPAN, including Attean, a complete RDF and SPARQL 1.1 implementation based on traits-based API design. I was a member of the SPARQL (1.1) Working Group during the standardization of SPARQL 1.1, was the editor of the SPARQL 1.1 Service Description and Protocol documents, and RDF::Query (now deprecated in favor of Attean) was among the first fully-conformant implementations of SPARQL 1.1.

I graduated from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in March, 2013 with a Ph.D in Computer Science. My research pursued efficient query federation in Semantic Web systems, with a particular focus on a flexible query answering system able to discover new data sources and incorporate them into the query plan mid-execution.
