My research focuses on statistical approaches to ontology learning and information retrieval from large text document collections. I believe my research interests fit extremely well with the research under the theme "Knowledge and Data Representation and Management". Thus, I am interested in the "Partitioning RDF for cloud-based scalable processing" (No. 350). During the research it was argued that the quality of automatically created ontologies can be improved by preliminary preparation of the collection for ontology learning by prior clustering of text document collection. So, the "Clustering or classification of high dimensional data in the presence of outliers" (No. 330) also seems to fit well enough. Finally, I/O module can be found in any application. It should be flexible enough in case of distribute computing, but it also should be comfortable for the user. Thus, I am also interested in the "I/O Systems for large Applications" (No. 351).
