<h2>Research Areas</h2>
<p>Information Retrieval Group is involved in several areas of research from <em>File System Search</em> to <em>Speech Information Retrieval</em> as well as <em>IR Evaluation</em>. Our primary research interests are towards:</p>
<ul>
<li>Designing expressive languages, effective retrieval techniques, and efficient storage and indexing methods for managing XML and other structured and semi-structured textual data.</li>
<li>Designing scalable technologies for distributed information retrieval systems based on an architecture built from a cluster of workstations using standard PC hardware.</li>
<li>Developing and testing a methodology for evaluating email spam filters.</li>
<li>Developing a filesystem search system, addressing issues of performance, Security and effectiveness.</li>
<li>Designing fine-grained access control mechanisms for securing text data against unauthorized access or manipulation.</li>
<li>Investigating the problems that may be solved by searching a collection of documents from a large enterprise, such as the identification of in-house experts in a specific domain.</li>
<li>Designing stand-alone XML data management systems and augmenting the capabilities of other database management systems to manage XML data.</li>
