ic
,
Ontologies, XML Modeling, Modeling the Reliability of Computer Systems, Object
Component based Conceptual Modeling and Design, Knowledge Discovery and Trust
in Service Oriented Environments as well as Validation of complex state based
systems includin
g protocols using high level Petri nets. He has also been active in the
field of XML based systems for over the last 9 years. He has

. He has also developed important algorithms
for data mining of complex structures including tree structur
ed data and sequence
data
. He has also proposed the use of Web 2.0 and social networ
king in conjunction
with ontologies, web services and agents.
Sensor network applications he is involved
in include vehicular traffic management, intelligent airport, power system monitoring,
remote oil platform monitoring and control and intelligent and a
daptive
manufacturing.
