    I am a member of the Database and Information Systems group. My research activities are focused on two main aspects. First, mining links by exploiting potential correlations between data instances to improve the predictive accuracy of learned models. Second, enhancing search capabilities of Information Retrieval Systems by: (1) developing new ranking models and query processing strategies for entity search, and (2) leveraging similarity search methodologies to handle content-based retrieval. The ultimate goal is to develop scalable solutions that address the requirements of massively distributed data.
