A 2-year postdoctoral researcher position on data mining, data federation, and knowledge system is open in 2018.



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 Resolution/Linking
  • Online social network mining
