My name is Jorge Gracia del Río. I currently work as assistant professor (“profesor ayudante doctor”) at the Department of Computer Science and Systems Engineering (University of Zaragoza, Spain) as a member of the Aragon Institute of Engineering Research (I3A) and of the Distributed Information Systems research group.

From 2009 to 2017 I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at Ontology Engineering Group (OEG), Artificial Intelligence Department,  Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM), Spain.

My main research interests are Semantic Web, Ontology Matching, Multilingual Web of Data, Query Interpretation, Web Intelligence. In particular, I am interested in how to move Language Resources, particularly lexicographic resources, from their data silos into the multilingual Web of Data and make them interoperable, to support a future generation of (Linked Data-aware) Natural Language Processing tools. I am also interested on methods and techniques for cross-lingual linking and cross-lingual information access.

Currently, I lead NexusLinguarum, the “European network for Web-centred linguistic data science” COST Action, which will start its activities on 28/10/2019. I am also involved in the Prêt-à-LLOD “Ready-to-use Multilingual Linked Language Data for Knowledge Services across Sectors” and Lynx “Legal Knowledge Graph for Multilingual Compliance Services” EU H2020 projects.
