Dr. Schobers main interest is devoted to labeling guidelines in terminological engineering and he created the ontology naming conventions for the OBO Foundry, the main best practice and policy provider in the biomedical terminology field. He published tools like OntoCheck to foster lexical coherence and easing ontology alignment efforts. From 2009 to 2012 he was a senior researcher and lecturer at the Institute for Medical Biometry and Medical Informatics (IMBI) at the University Medical Center Freiburg, Germany, where he lead the ontology workpackage in the DebugIT EU-Project. He is the main researcher on the German side of the NTDO collaboration between UFPE-Brazil and IMBI-Germany. Since 2012 he leads the standards development work package withn the COSMOS EU project, which tackles metabolomics and nmr data standard developments.
