RESEARCH INTERESTS

Novel uses of data mining technology, including data mining of text, data mining techniques applied to interoperation of heterogeneous information sources, and security and privacy issues raised by data mining. Fundamental data mining challenges posed by these applications, such as extracting knowledge from noisy data, identifying knowledge in highly skewed data (few examples of interesting behavior), limits on learning. Database support for widely distributed and autonomously controlled information, particularly information administration issues.
