I am a PhD Candidate in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Regina . My supervisor is Dr. Yiyu Yao. I have completed my M.Sc. of Computer Science in August, 2008. My research interests include Information Retrieval, Web Intelligence, Data Analysis, Granular Computing and Formal Languages.
