OBJECTIVE I have completed my Doctor of Engineering (D.Eng.) from Toyohashi University of Technology, Japan with a number of research awards. My doctoral dissertation title was“Ontology Alignment and Its Application to Knowledge Engineering”. I have developed a scalable algorithm in the field of large ontology alignment, called Anchor-Flood algorithm, which was presented in Ontology Alignment Evaluation Initiative (OAEI) campaign, 2008 (Germany) and 2009 (USA) and the contribution was published in the Journal of Web Semantics. Moreover, I have a few more contributions on instance matching, Semantic NLP, healthcare and geospatial domain using semantic technology as well. My current research includes machine learning techniques in Ontology, Information Access (IA), Healthcare and Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) research.
RESEARCH INTERESTS Semantic Web: ontology alignment and instance matching
Big Graph: big graph analysis using distributed system
SemanticNLP: semantic technology in NLP
CPS: ontology-based Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS)
Telehealth: telehealth using ontology, machine learning and CPS
