I am Monireh Ebrahimi, a Graduate Research Assistant at Ohio Center of Excellence in Knowledge-enabled Computing ( Kno.e.sis) at Wright State University. At Semantic Web Research Lab, my research areas include Machine learning, Natural Language Processing, and Semantic Web.

I am also PhD Student in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Wright State University and a recipient of Graduate Council Scholar award. I graduated from University of Technology, Malaysia (UTM) as a best student in master of Computer Science. I have earned a B.Sc. degree in Software Engineering from Shiraz University in 2010.

I am currently working on Harassment Detection on Social Media and also eDrugTrends projects at Kno.e.sis. Follow the links on left for further details on my publications and other details.


        Context-Aware Harassment Detection on Social Media is an inter-disciplinary project among the Ohio Center of Excellence in Knowledge-enabled Computing (Kno.e.sis), the Department of Psychology, and Center for Urban and Public Affairs (CUPA) at Wright State University. The aim of this project is to develop comprehensive and reliable context-aware techniques (using machine learning, text mining, natural language processing, and social network analysis) to glean information about the people involved and their interconnected network of relationships, and to determine and evaluate potential harassment and harassers. An interdisciplinary team of computer scientists, social scientists, urban and public affairs professionals, educators, and the participation of college and high schools students in the research will ensure wide impact of scientific research on the support for safe social interactions.

        eDrugTrends is an inter-disciplinary project between the Ohio Center of Excellence in Knowledge-enabled Computing (Kno.e.sis) and the Center for Interventions, Treatment and Addictions Research (CITAR) at Wright State University developed to monitor cannabis and synthetic cannabinoid use.

    About Kno.e.sis

            The Ohio Center of Excellence in Knowledge-enabled Computing (Kno.e.sis ) at Wright State University performs world-class research on translating information to meaning, towards the vision of Computing for Human Experience. The well-funded center consists of 13 labs and approximately 100 multidisciplinary researchers, including 15 faculty members and more than 50 Ph.D. students from Computer Science (i.e., machine learning, natural language processing, information retrieval, knowledge representation, databases, data mining, bioinformatics, and visualization), biomedical sciences, health informatics, and cognitive science.

            The center's current focus is on Web 3.0 topics, including the Semantic/Social/Sensor Webs, Web of Things, and Ubiquitous-Mobile-Cloud Computing, with varied applications such as disaster management and diplomacy (e.g., social media-based emergency coordination, water diplomacy), e-Sciences with a focus on health-care and life sciences (metabolomics, human parasite research, extra-medical use of painkillers, reducing hospital readmissions, cardiology data mining, and literature-based knowledge discovery), and defense/intelligence (warfighter situational awareness, sociocultural-behavioral analysis, human effectiveness).
