About Me


Research Interest

My research interests lie in semantic web and eLearning. Specifically, my work has focused on eLearning, its metadata extraction, semantic provenance and indexing techniques to effectively and efficiently store and retrieve Learning Objects and their metadata. I have also worked on ontology for IEEE LOM. Additionally I have worked on Semantic DBMS to RDF and semantic queries using SPARQL. My recent work and future research direction will focus more on data semantics and data integration for Learning Objects in different domains. I also have interest in the complex ontology translation for the emerging Semantic Web services.
