Selected Student Achievements


Kunal Sengupta

Kunal Sengupta was a PhD student in the Data Semantics Lab between January 2011 and August 2015. His research and project work during his time in the DaSe Lab included theoretical investigations concerning the representation of knowledge on the Web, as well as the implementation of a Drupal-based review system which is used, amongst others, by the Semantic Web journal. He also interned at fluid Operations in Germany, and at Siemens Corporate Research in Princeton. Upon graduation, he joined Amazon as Software Development Engineer. More information about his work at the DaSe Lab can be found on his website.


Adila Krisnadhi

Adila Krisnadhi was a PhD student in the Data Semantics Lab between September 2010 and December 2015, and for most of this time was supported by a Fulbright scholarship. His dissertation was on knowledge modeling for data integration in the ocean sciences, but he also worked on theoretical aspects of knowledge representation during his time at the DaSe Lab. He received the oustanding student award 2015 in the PhD-CSE program by the School of Graduate Studies. As part of his graduate studies he spent two months in Germany to visit and work with collaborators. He also interned for a summer at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center in New York. Upon graduation, he decided to stay for some time as a lecturer and postdoctoral researcher at the lab. More information about his work can be found on his website.


David Carral

In September 2011, David Carral began as a Master student in the Data Semantics Lab. He completed his Master with thesis option within 12 months, and also already published 3 research papers during this time. Since September 2012, he is a PhD student in the Data Semantics Lab. His work focuses on logical foundations of knowledge representation and reasoning, but he is also involved in interdisciplinary ontology modeling activities, including high-energy physics and library science. He received sevaral prestigious scholarships and awards while being a graduate student, including a La Caixa scholarship, a Wright State School of Graduate Studies Scholarship, the outstanding student award in the CS-MS program 2012 by the School of Graduate Studies, and the oustanding PhD student award 2015 by the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. As part of his graduate studies he spent 7 months at the University of Oxford, UK, and one month at Universidad de Chile, to pursue joint research with collaborators. Upon graduation in Fall 2016, he joins the Knowledge-based Systems group at TU Dresden, Germany, as a postdoctoral researcher. More information about his work can be found on his website.
