Aidan Hogan Friend of a Friend


My name is Aidan. (/eɪ'dæn/ or /eɪ'dɛn/ ... eh-Dan or eh-Den ... but it doesn't really matter).

This is my academic homepage.

I'm an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science (DCC) at the Universidad de Chile. I've been working here since December 2013.

Before that I worked at the Digital Enterprise Research Institute (DERI) (now called INSIGHT) based in the National University of Ireland, Galway. I started there in April 2005, doing an internship and various other things, including a PhD which I defended in February 2011. Then I did a PostDoc for more than two years. I left DERI/INSIGHT for Chile in November 2013.

My general research interest is in exploring whether or not the Semantic Web and Linked Data are good proposals for organising the content of the Web.

My ultimate research goal is to one day write a good research paper ... and practice makes perfect I guess.
