Hi! Jean-Paul Calbimonte here.jp

I am Associate Professor at the Institute of Informatics (II) of the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Western Switzerland (HES-SO). I am also Principal Investigator at The Sense Innovation and Research Center where I lead the Knowledge Management Research Unit. I worked previously as a postdoc at EPFL in the Distributed Information Systems Lab (LSIR).

I also worked at the Ontology Engineering Group of UPM (Madrid), where I did my PhD. Our laboratory is located in the beautiful city of Sierre, Switzerland , in the middle of the Swiss Alps.




I work on knowledge science and ontology-based approaches for data access and integration on the Web.
My main focus is on streaming data sources, sensor data on the Web, and the Internet of Things.
I have worked lately on e-Health and personalized health solutions, based on semantics and intelligent agent-based approaches.
I helped coordinating the W3C RDF Stream Processing Group.
I also work on self-organizing systems, streaming data processing, heterogeneous knowledge management, and generation of Linked Data, mainly for use cases in eHealth and mHealth. If you want to share your ideas and any of this rings a bell, email me!


More about me

I worked as postdoc at LSIR, EPFL between 2014 and 2016, with Karl Aberer.
We worked on several projects on semantic data management in IoT and sensors for environmental and health sciences.

I spent four amazing years in Madrid doing my PhD at UPM between 2009 and 2013, under the supervision of Oscar Corcho in the Ontology Engineering Group led by Asun Gómez-Pérez.
There I worked (a lot) on semantic sensor streams, stream reasoning and OBDA.

I was research visitor at the IMG Group, University of Manchester (UK) in 2010.
There my PhD topic started to take shape.

I’ve also been a research visitor at LSIR lab, EPFL in 2011. Before, I spent 2 splendid years in Lausanne doing my Master in CS at EPFL; I worked on my Master thesis with Fabio Porto, at Stefano Spaccapietra’s LDB Lab.

I did my computer science Bachelor at UCB in Cochabamba. There, I worked at the IIIA Lab.
