Research Interests:

Claria's research interests primarily encompass the field of pervasive informatics, with a specific focus on the creation, management, distribution, and utilization of ambient information within ICT-enabled social-technical environment. This field explores how the integration of information and communication

technologies can support scientific and economic activities by providing seamless access to contextual information and effective use of information. By studying pervasive informatics, Claria aims to understand how information can be harnessed to enhance various domains and facilitate more efficient and effective decision-making processes. Pervasive informatics encompasses several subdomains and areas of research that focus on different aspects of integrating technology into everyday life. Claria focuses on:

· Social and Collaborative Computing: Social and Collaborative Computing is a subdomain within pervasive informatics that focuses on leveraging technology to facilitate social interactions, collaboration, and knowledge sharing in various contexts of everyday life. This subdomain encompasses the design and development of social networking platforms, architectures, collaborative tools, and systems that enhance communication and cooperation among dispersed information systems.

· Data Management and Analytics Pervasive informatics involves developing methods and techniques for managing and analysing the vast amounts of data generated by pervasive systems. This includes data collection, storage, processing, and extracting valuable insights to support decision-making and improve user experiences.
