Dr Marta Sabou is an Assistant Professor at the Department of New Media Technology as of May 2010. Before joining MODUL University Vienna, she was a Research Fellow at the Knowledge Media Institute of the Open University, UK. She holds a Master's Degree in Artificial Intelligence from the Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam. In 2005 she completed her PhD at the Knowledge Representation Group of the Vrije Universiteit on the topic of enhancing and (semi)automatically learning ontologies used to specify the semantic description of Web services. In 2006, she won IEEE Intelligent System’s Ten to Watch Award. Much of her work was carried out in the context of major European research projects, such as WonderWeb, KnowledgeWeb, SWAP, NeOn, OpenKnowledge and SmartProducts. Her current research focuses on building novel applications that are capable of exploring large-scale, semantic Web content. In particular, she investigates methods for ontology selection, modularization and matching that are needed in this context. Her work has been published in IEEE Intelligent Systems, Journal of Web Semantics, and high-impact conferences such as the International World Wide Web Conference and the International Semantic Web Conference.
