Research Expertise and Interests
Her extensive research covers XML technology, data mining, information retrieval/extraction and visualization, mobile computing and distributed system, such as cloud computing, technology enhanced learning. She was an invited speaker for XML World, an industrial event to present XML and ontology in science and technology in USA, 2003. Her paper (Lu, 2004) was one of the top 6 accessed articles announced by Notable titles in Software Engineering 2006, World Scientific Publisher. The satellite model presented in the paper further extended the classification theory for multidisciplinary application in information retrieval and extraction. tries (2009-1-NO1-LEO05-01046), and DONE-IT (mobile exam system) (511485-LLP-1-2010-NO-KA3-KA3MP), HRLAW2016 - 3090 / 001 - 001.
