Tanay Aggarwal joins the SKM team

On 1 October 2023, Tanay Aggarwal joined our team, starting his doctoral research under the supervision of Dr Angelo Salatino, Dr Francesco Osborne, and Prof Enrico Motta. Tanay will investigate novel AI solutions for (semi)automatically generating ontologies of research topics.

Tanay is not a new face to us, as he joined our team back in 2021 for two visiting periods, collaborating with Angelo. He completed the development of R-Classify in the first period and assisted Angelo with developing a research topic classifier for Engineering in the second period.

Out of these two experiences, he also published a scientific article:

Tanay Aggarwal, Angelo Salatino, Francesco Osborne, Enrico Motta, “R-classify: Extracting research papers’ relevant concepts from a controlled vocabulary”, Software Impacts, 2022, 100444, ISSN 2665-9638, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.simpa.2022.100444.

Tanay has a Bachelors’ of Technology Degree from the Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University (GGSIPU) with a strong background in Data Science and Information Technology Engineering. He is very passionate about research, leading him to pursue postgraduate studies at KMi with our team.

We are thrilled to have Tanay onboard, and we look forward to working with him on tackling the challenge of generating and integrating ontologies of research areas in different fields of science.
