My current research at KMi is focused on the analysis of online communities (Social Web). My aim is to understand users' behaviour and needs and to develop prediction models to foreseen risks and opportunities in online communities based on the behaviour of their users. I have also previously worked on semantic Search. Within the context of this research line I investigated methods to enhance traditional IR and QA techniques introducing higher level of conceptualisations in the form of ontologies as well as methods and benchmarks to evaluate semantic search systems

Keys: social web, semantic web, information retrieval, personalization, contextualization
