Dominic Jones is a post-doctoral researcher in the Knowledge and Data Engineering Group (KDEG) at Trinity College Dublin. His PhD was based around Semantic Publish/Subscribe Technology, using Ontological models in the routing on messages from Publisher to Subscriber. Dominic currently works for the W3C Multilingual Web Working Group and the Centre for Next Generation Localisation. As part of his work in MLW-LT project Dominic coordinates delivery of the Test Suite deliverable which shows conformance of the standard across a number of implementations required for the standard to pass through the W3C process. In the CNGL project Dominic has a project management role working on delivering the research agenda of the centre. He has previously worked on worked on modelling cross-centre meta-data, as chair of the meta-data group and organised numerous scientific showcases held as part of the centres continuing research program.
