Research & Projects

Experiences shape interests. For years, I enjoyed being an engineer in the IT industry, leading the design and development of several large-scale information systems. Coming from the industrial background, I have been motivated by critical problems in the real world. To address these problems, I focused on high-level theoretical investigations of the abstraction and relied on ``big data'' in the real world for experimental research.
My research has been centered on information retrieval (IR) systems, particularly large-scale distributed systems for IR. The goal was to study intelligent information systems that can adapt and scale in the growing magnitude and dynamics of information/data. Around this topic, I have also conducted research on ad-hoc retrieval models, interactive IR, text mining, and complex networks. I organized my research into the following themes.
