Research focus

I employ formal methods to examine issues in the conceptual foundations of information access, organization, and retrieval, especially with regards to web and data semantics. Knowledge representation techniques and modeling exercises, such as ontology development and conceptual modeling, represent a sizable area of overlap in my research.
