OVERVIEW
I hold the position of Associate Professor of Intelligence Computing at the School of Computing, College of Art and Sciences, Universiti Utara Malaysia, and member of the Software Computing Group. I am working in information retrieval and semantic web. Semantic Web aims to build a common framework that allows data to be shared and reused across applications, enterprises, and community boundaries. Currently, relational models and XML tree models are widely used to represent structured and semi-structured data. But they offer limited means to capture the semantics of data. Information retrieval technology has been central to the success of the Web. For semantic web documents or annotations to have an impact, they will have to be compatible with Web based indexing and retrieval technology. Currently my main research interests are in flood disaster management through a holistic and well-structured approach that will impart new ideas and theories in managing emergency situation in Malaysia e.g., by providing relevant information, facilitating task and resource planning, and managing communication with all involved parties. In this research, we introduce the support system, which is a functional prototype for such software using semantic technologies for various purposes. Ontologies are used for creating a mutual understanding between developers and end users from different organizations. Information sources and services are annotated with ontologies for improving the provision of the right information at the right time, for connecting existing systems and databases to the proposed system, and for providing an ontology-based visualization. This research is funded by Kementerian Pendidikan Malaysia through Long term Research Grant Scheme (LRGS) which started in 2012 and expected to complete in 2016. Vision: please contact me if you have an outstanding background and motivation to undertake PhD studies or post-doctoral research as I am always looking for excellent new team members.
