Research focus

My research interests are on topics related to knowledge diffusion, citation context, and scholarly communication. In particular, my research combines data mining, text mining, and machine learning techniques with citation analysis. I have used citation links and citation contexts for understanding how patents were used in scientific publications. Currently, I am working on extracting citation motives and functions through citation contexts.
