Research

My research interests includes ontology-based modeling of artifacts, engineering knowledge management, and practical ontology development. Three central research aims are:

  1. To articulate fundamental concepts important to human's naive understanding of artifacts,
  2. To develop ontologies of such concepts as a basis of systematic knowledge modeling,
  3. To realize knowledge management systems in engineering domain based on them, and
  4. To investigate practical ontology development through the research mentioned above.
