Dr. Kody Moodley

Kody Moodley is a postdoctoral researcher who joined the Institute for Data Science at Maastricht University in March 2017. Kody completed his PhD in Computer Science through tenures at the University of Manchester and the University of KwaZulu-Natal.

With funding from the National Research Foundation (NRF) and the Centre for Artificial Intelligence Research (CAIR) in South Africa, Kody’s research has focused on Description Logics (DLs) and their application as formalisms for representing ontologies on the Semantic Web.

His most recent contribution is in devising defeasible reasoning mechanisms for DLs that are practical and scalable for real-world ontologies published on the Web.
