Areas of Research: 

My research interests are on topics related to the semantic web, linked open data and ontologies. I've worked on cross-lingual ontology mapping/matching problems from a knowledge organization perspective. To be more specific, I tried to align concepts in different languages from different schemas and merge them into one ontology. I'm currently working with Professor Bertram Ludäscher on projects related to taxonomy alignment.
