My main research activity is in Mobile Information Retrieval. I am involved in RelMobIR project in which the main emphasis is on combination of different relevance criteria for mobile information retrieval. Some of the relevance criteria are topical, temporal, geographic, and etc. Prior to that, I have worked on Spoken Language Understanding in discriminative frameworks such as CRF both in supervised and semi-supervised manner.
