Dr. Robert Kukla is a Senior Research Fellow at Edinburgh Napier University’s Institute for Informatics and Digital Innovation with considerable experience in developing database and web technologies on EPSRC and EU grants and applying them in a commercial environment.

He was a Research Fellow on SEEK and developer of the taxonomic concept schema (TCS) which has been ratified as a TDWG standard. Other research activities include the knowledge base system for the Framework 6 REORIENT project, the interactive web portal for the visualisation project MATSE and the online presence of the Biological Visualisation Community BIVI. He has co-developed and maintains several of the University’s online systems: the intranet system for research institutes, the Research Student Management System and the staff Workload Allocation Management system.

As a supervisor on two Knowledge Transfer Projects (T2E, Scottish Woodlands), Robert has provided expertise and support for companies to implement milestones in their IT strategy. His portfolio also includes a number of collaboration with SMEs to develop data-driven interactive websites. More recently he has applied his knowledge of web technologies to the development of cross-platform mobile apps.
