Research Expertise

Data Mining | Web and Text Mining | Computation Linguistics | Sentiment Analysis | Intellectual Property | Science Policy

My research interests are broadly in the area of Data Mining, which is an inter-disciplinary field that combines Statistics and Computer Science in an effort to identify patterns in large quantities of data.  A subfield of interest is in Text Mining, which is essentially data mining with text.  I am currently collaborating with the School of Medicine to develop a text mining tool related to literature based discovery of treatments for rare diseases that are not well studied.

I am also interested in the study of innovation and emerging technologies through the mining of large patent databases.
