I am interested in anything Semantic Web! I am interested in applying these technologies to specific domains (specifically Chemical Data) and anything surrounding the use of development of these technologies.

I have demonstrated for various modules during the three years of my PhD.
First Year Modules
COMP1202 (Programming 1) - I was a lab demonstrator for this module, I provided help and answered questions about basic Java at each lab session, and marked their work at designated marking sessions. I also helped mark the coursework for this module which was a Hospital Simulator written in Java, and invigilated the exam in a technical support capacity. I also demonstrated for the extra help sessions for this module, helping the students that required additional support in both the lab work and coursework.
COMP1206 (Programming 2) - I was a lab demonstrator for this module, I provided help and answered questions about advanced Java (Swing, Threads etc) at each lab session, and marked their work at every session. I also helped mark the first set of courseworks for this module, which was a Mandelbrot Set GUI written in Java.
COMP1205 (Personal & Professional Development) - I helped out on various pieces of work for this module. I conducted group feedback sessions for students alongside other postgrads for their presentation drafts, and marked and gave feedback for the final presentations with a member of Academic Staff. I also marked both essay drafts and the full essays.
COMP1216 (Software Modelling and Design) - I was a lab demonstrator for this module, I provided help and answered questions at each lab session with respect to UML and software modelling.
Second Year Modules
COMP2209 (Programming 3) - I helped mark both sets of functional programming coursework.
COMP2211 (Software Engineering Group Project) - I was a mentor for two sets of second year groups, and saw them through the entire project. This involved weekly meetings, playing the role of both their customer and their mentor, and advising them on how to proceed with their project and how to manage it using Agile and SCRUM. This also involved fortnightly marking meetings, whereby we would 'buddy' with other mentors to collaboratively mark our own and each others groups.
COMP6217 (The Science of Online Social Networks) - I was a mentor for a set of mixed MSc and MEng students across different programmes in ECS. This involved weekly meetings to provide advice on how to develop the idea of their social networking idea, and advising them in how to present it effectively both through a blog portfolio and a dragons den pitch. This also involved marking their blogs at the end of the module.
I mentored 2 groups of masters students throughout the entire academic year, I held weekly meetings with them where we discussed any issues they had (personal or university based) and ran sessions for them to look at areas such as: literature organisation and referencing, report writing, exam preparation, coursework questions and took them through our Academic Integrity rules.
