I am worked as a research fellow in KMi. My research mainly focused on i) building a semantic web portal infrastructure, which aims to make ordinary web sites semantic by adding a semantic data layer to them, and ii) building a methodology, which supports knowledge sharing across different media formats.

Keys: Semantic Search, Semantic Metadata Acquisition, Ontology Mapping, Semantic MetaData Transformation, Conceptual Web Modelling, Ontology-driven Web Site Generation and Customization, User Interface Modelling
