Dr. Feroz Farazi received his PhD in Computer Science from the Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Trento (UNITN), Italy in 2010. He was involved in the EnAlgae project (http://www.enalgae.eu/) for the development of a decision support tool and a semantic search tool. He was also involved in the Open Data Trentino (ODT) project for the development of a large-scale Knowledge Base with data originating from the data catalogue of the Autonomous Province of Trento.

Dr Farazi worked on the Semantic Geo-Catalog (SGC) project. The goal of the SGC project was to extend the Geo-Catalog of the Autonomous Province of Trento with the semantic capability to better serve user queries. Between 2012 to 2015 he taught Semantic Web for the master's course entitled Logics for Data and Knowledge Representation.

His academic career began in 2001 with teaching at the undergraduate level in Bangladesh at Shahjalal University of Science and Technology in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, where he was responsible for conducting both theoretical classes and hands-on sessions until 2003. Another three years at the University of Chittagong in Bangladesh enriched his career, comprising a total of 5 years of undergraduate level teaching experience.
