Research Staff Member
Daresbury Lab, Warrington, UK



Geeth is a Research Staff Member based in the UK—IBM Research has its first presence in the UK through the Hartree Centre collaboration with Science and Technology Facility Council (STFC) in Daresbury.  His research interests are in artificial intelligence—especially in Semantic Web technologies—and on decision support systems in the presence of (or lack of) dynamicity, trust, and provenance. 

He graduated from the University of Aberdeen, Scotland and did his postdoctoral work at the US Army Research Laboratory (ARL), Adelphi, USA till he joined IBM Research TJ Watson Research Center, Yorktown, USA in late 2013.  During his time at the ARL, he focused his research on decision support systems and led the knowledge representation and reasoning work at the fusion branch.  Currently at IBM Research, he focuses on knowledge-based techniques for agile policy frameworks—especially for the Internet of Things paradigm, semantic interpretation of stream information—especially social media information—to better support information correlations and corroboration, and techniques to incorporate pragmatics of questions to better address the quality of information needs of users based on network quality.
