Short Biography

Ruben Taelman is a finishing PhD student at IDLab, Ghent University – imec, Belgium. His research concerns the decentralized publication and querying of Linked Data on the Web, and investigating the trade-offs that exist between server and client. He has contributed to this domain through publications in journals such as the Semantic Web Journal and the Journal of Web Semantics. Next to that, he is actively applying his research by developing reusable software that can be used by developers and other researchers. Furthermore, he has presented his work at various conferences and workshops such as the Web Conference, the International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC), and the Extended Semantic Web Conference (ESWC). Additionally, he has served as a reviewer and program committee member for these journals and conferences.
