Biography

I am David Chaves-Fraga, a postdoctoral researcher at the Ontology Engineering Group at Technical University of Madrid. I hold the PhD in the same place with my thesis "Knowledge Graph Construction from Heterogeneous Data Sources Exploiting Declarative Mapping Rules" in July 2021. My main research lines are focused on the optimization and evaluation of data integration systems, mainly the construction of Knowledge Graphs from (semi)structured sources using declarative mapping rules.

As I really believe that research is a collaborative task, I'm continuously trying to contribute to my research community. For that reason, I'm currently co-chairing the W3C community group for Knowledge Graph Construction, I organize two workshop series (KGC and Sem4Tra) and several tutorials in semantic web conferences about the same topic. Additionally, I have been the main coordinator of Open Summer of Code in Spain from 2018 to 2021, a formative, international, and innovative program for undergrad and master students.
