I am a Ph.D. student in the Semantic Web at the Digital Enterprise Research Institute at NUI Galway, Ireland. My research is on argumentation, scientific and scholarly communication, and the Social Semantic Web. I am a working member of two W3C groups: Library Linked Data and biosciences Scientific Discourse. Previously I was a librarian in U.S. academic libraries. I became a Semantic Web researcher to bring these two worlds together, and to help ensure that libraries would become part of the Web of (meta)data.

For the W3C Library Linked Data Incubator Group, I am curating community-contributed use cases in two areas: Digital Objects and Social & Emerging Uses. I regularly publish research papers about semantic technologies. Recently I have spoken about the need for reading-aware ontologies to support diverse reading tasks, about an ontology I created for Wikipedia discussions, and about modeling social media discussions with RDF. I'm currently working on ontologies for scholarly papers with a W3C group on Scientific Discourse in biosciences. Licensing issues are generally familiar to me from my work as a librarian; my most direct experience comes from using Creative Commons licenses for two open access projects. Four years ago, I was a founding editor for the Code4Lib Journal, an open access library technology journal; thanks to input from the DOAJ and retroactive agreement from authors, in our first year of operation we became CC-BY licensed. My current open access project is AcaWiki, a which collects CC-BY licensed research summaries using Semantic MediaWiki.
