Web Science (WSL)

The Web Science Lab (WSL) focuses on the analytical power of researchers from disciplines as diverse as mathematics, sociology, economics, psychology, law and computer science in order to understand and explain the Web. It is necessarily interdisciplinary; it is as much about social and organizational behavior as it is about the underpinning technology. Current research topics include semantic web, linked data, big data and open data, as applied in education and healthcare, on all platforms, including, but not limited to, mobile and Internet of Things (IoT).

Active Research Areas:

  • Semantic web
  • Linked data
  • Big data and open data (as applied in education and healthcare)
