My research interest include the use of metadata for representing and organizing resources. Digital Libraries like the National Science Digital Library and several other Museums have now the ability to store large amount of digitized resources that patrons can consult online. But while technology has made it possible to store almost unlimited amount of information, without the proper mechanism to represent and organize digital resources, accessibility to these resources remain a challenge. How best to represent resources? How best to ensure accessibility of resources to users? What are the difficulties faced when representing resources and how can we overcome these problems? These are key questions that I address in my research.

Member of the Semantic Web Lab:
In a wide range of areas, including digital libraries, knowledge management, data mining, social media, electronic commerce, and Web services, Semantic Web technologies are becoming ever more important for the sharing of data and metadata and for the management of knowledge. As such, the Semantic Web Lab (SWL) works to develop better methods to model, share, link and integrate data and information to enhance knowledge discovery and dissemination.
