I was an intern at KMi during the July-October 2008 period.
At that time I was a 3th year PhD student at the ICT school at University of Modena e Reggio.
My research activity is focused on the study and the development of some disambiguation techniques that can be apply on structured and semi-structured data sources in order to improve Data Integration.
Within the DBGROUP of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia I have developed different disambiguation algorithms(MELIS and CWSD that is a combined algorithm) and I have integrate them into our data integration system (MOMIS).
I am currently studing a probabilistic way to combine different WSD algorithms to improved the disambiguation result.
During my visit at KMi I compared my techniques to the Jorge Garcia disambiguation techniques and I investigated some research lines to improved the disambiguation techniques used in Scarlet.
My supervisors were Dr. Marta Sabou and Prof. Enrico Motta.
