(2014-) The Open Multilingual Wordnet: Within the Open Multilingual Wordnet (OMW), I have been one of the main contributors (both front and back-end development) to this rich multilingual semantic resource. I've been involved in multiple levels of decision, from the redesign and implementation of database schemas, to the development of the web interface that serves this resource. I was the main developer of OMWEdit, a web service to edit and expand wordnets. And I've also been involved in the expansion of wordnet resources to include new concept classes like pronouns, determiners, classifiers and interjections.

(2014-) NTU Multilingual Corpus (IMI): I’ve been assisting the development and the tagging of this multilingual corpus since 2014. I’ve been a main contributor to IMI – A Multilingual Semantic Annotation Environment, that covers multiple levels of mono-lingual and cross-lingual annotation (e.g. sense annotation, sentiment, etc.), as well as tools to display and search this corpus (available here).
