Interests

My research interests mainly focus on semantically rich contents/documents/texts resulted from massive tagging and annotations by various levels of users. In general, studies are focused on automated contents building, platform development for structured text processing, and working applications of such contents. 

Research projects offered for Master and PhD supervisions include:

1) Learning to Automate Contents Annotation
2) Searching the Expert's Expertise
3) Dynamic Facets for Interactive Focused Search 
4) Opinion Mining Technique for Small Sample Sizes

If you are interested in the mentioned projects, do not hesitate to email me for collaboration or supervision.
