Eva Blomqvist is currently (since July 2011) employed as Assistant Professor in the MDA lab (HCS division) at IDA, Linköping University. She is currently working in context of the SecurityLink strategic research centre, with focus on decision support for security and crisis management. Research interests include semantic technologies for information integration and complex event processing, based on ontologies and ontology design patterns (ODPs). Previously she was an Assistant Professor at the department for Electronic and Computer Engineering, at the School of Engineering of Jönköping University. Eva has also done a 20-month postdoc at the Semantic Technologies Lab, ISTC-CNR, Rome, Italy, during 2009-2010. The main topic of the postdoc was methods for user-centered selection and use of ODPs in ontology engineering with focus on semantic content management.
Research qualifications include leading national research projects, experience from international research projects (supervising activities in certain WP:s and tasks), preparing project applications (3 recent grants acquired), conference organization, PC memberships, as well as practical experience in ontology engineering. On the teaching side she has experience ranging from pre-bachelor to Ph.D. courses, as well as Master Thesis supervision and assistant supervision of PhD students. Eva has co-organized several research events and conferences (such as being poster&demos chair of ISWC2013 and co-organizer of the SMILE2013 and 2014 workshops) and is currently poster&demos chair of ESWC2014 and workshop and tutorials chair of EKAW 2014. She has had numerous PC assignments and additional referee assignments for scientific journals.
Eva was a Ph.D. Student at the department for Electronic and Computer Engineering, at the School of Engineering of Jönköping University until January 2009. In April 2009 she defended her Ph.D. thesis entitled "Semi-automatic Ontology Construction based on Patterns" at Linköping University. Subsequently she moved to Italy to become a junior researcher (postdoc) at the STLab, within ISTC-CNR, in Rome (IT).
She holds a Master of Science in Computer Science and Engineering from Linköping University with Software Engineering as her major, and Security in Sensor Networks as subject for the Master's Thesis. She started her Ph.D. studies at Jönköping University in 2003, with Prof. Kurt Sandkuhl as main supervisor, but was also connected to Linköping University to which her assistant supervisor, Prof. Henrik Eriksson, is associated.
