Short bio

My name is Mikel Egaña Aranguren, and I am an Assistant Profesor at Universidad del País Vasco/Euskal Herriko Unibertsitatea (UPV/EHU), in the Dept. of Computer Languages and Systems, Bilbo, Spain.

My research interests revolve around the idea of making the publication of data following FAIR principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) easier and more efficient. I am also interested in Open Data and transparency, Knowledge Graphs and Linked Data, Semantic Web in general, Free Software, ontology engineering, bioinformatics, medical informatics, and minorized languages like basque.

I am a biologist by the UPV/EHU; I also hold a PhD in computer science and an MSc in Bioinformatics, both awarded by the Univesity of Manchester, UK. I have worked in academia (UM, UPM and UPV/EHU in Spain; VIB in Belgium), and in the private sector (eccenca GmbH in Germany and Eurohelp Consulting in Spain, funded by the Torres Quevedo program). I have also done Freelance work for Cognizone (Belgium) and UM (Spain).
