Research Overview

My research is personalization, information search, addressing the query of how to find needed information for users from the vast volume on the web, how to ensure understanding of discovered information and supply it as knowledge. Furthermore, I have been developing next generation Web applications that aim to achieve effective search and integration of Web content which is continually increasing. I'm also developing information-fusion technology, which integrates the user modeling and 3D content on the Web, in order to achieve fusion between people and the environment.
