My name is Ruben Taelman. I was born on May 12 1992 in Ostend, Belgium. I graduated as a Software Engineer from Ghent University in the summer of 2015. After that, I immediately started working as a Semantic Web researcher at IDLab, imec, Ghent University.

I have always been fascinated by the Web and programming in general, as can be seen from the different projects I have worked on in the past. I am a proponent of openness, which is why I try to open-source all my projects whenever possible.

During my master's thesis, I became fascinated by the Semantic Web and more specifically its promising links with artificial intelligence, which is why I became a researcher in that domain. I am currently doing research in the domain of scalable publication and consumption of dynamic Linked Data.
