Research Interests

My research interest is knowledge harvesting through text mining, information retrieval, natural language processing, and machine learning, especially on the following topics:
  • Data Federation
  • Privacy-aware heterogeneous on registry data
  • Web people name disambiguation
  • E-discovery:entity alias discovery in the Web/Enterprise
  • Crowd sourcing
  • Entity search
  • Online social network mining
