Li Ding is a research scientist working with Deborah McGuinness and Jim Hendler in the Tetherless world Constellation at RPI. He received his PhD in Computer Science from UMBC. He worked in the eBiquity lab and advised by the Lab's director, Tim Finin. His thesis involved developing infrastructures for Web-scale data access, and he is the main contributor to Swoogle, the pioneer search engine for the Semantic Web. His primary research focus is on facilitating semantic web data access. He is also interested in the broad fields in artificial intelligence, such as agent, ontology, social network, trust, machine learning.
