Mohamed Magdy , Ph.D.
I'm a PhD student in the department of Computer Science at Virginia Tech. My research interests are information retrieval, digital libraries, data analysis, and semantic Web. I earned my B.S in computer science from Alexandria University and M.Sc from Arab Academy for Science and Technology (AAST). I'm now working in the Digital Library Research and Laboratory (DLRL) lab under the supervision of Dr. Edward A. Fox. My work involves developing new focused crawling approaches for modeling and collecting information from the WWW about crises events. I'm also working on connecting digital libraries and web archives to build live collections for crises events.
