I investigated the fastest way to crawl the Web with the smallest amount of computational resources. I designed and implemented a prototype, Web crawler that preserved an up-to-date index of Web pages without making a priori assumptions about the way the Web changes.

Background

Research Areas

I have carried out work on the following research areas:
  • Web-based horizon scanning: A systematic examination of information to identify potential threats, risks, emerging issues and opportunities, allowing for better preparedness and the incorporation of mitigation and exploitation into the policy making process.
  • Web crawling: Search engines make use of large indices of word occurrences on Web pages to cross-reference Web sites to keywords. Such indices are maintained by crawlers, a special kind of computer program that browses the Web autonomously. I have reviewed several alternatives to split a crawler's work into multiple processes, and examine their weaknesses and strengths experimentally.
