Ulrike M. Sattler is a Professor of Computer Science in the Information management group of the School of Computer Science at the University of Manchester [14] where she is Director of Postgraduate studies.


Sattler completed her PhD in 1998 under the supervision of Franz Baader[2] at RWTH Aachen University. She moved to the University of Manchester as lecturer in 2002.


Sattler's research[15][1][16][17][18] focuses on logic to support knowledge representation including Description logic,[19][20] Dynamic logic and Modal logic. She is also investigating the inference problems, complexity theory and decision procedures associated with knowledge representation. This research has been important in the development of the Web Ontology Language (OWL)[21] and its use in Bioinformatics and Molecular biology.[7][22]

Sattler's research has been partly funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.[23]

Academic Service[edit]

Sattler is an editor of the Journal of Logic and Computation, on the editorial board of the Journal of Automated Reasoning, and a Chair for various conferences including the International Joint Conference on Automated Reasoning.[24]
