I am Faegheh Hasibi, a PhD research fellow at the Department of Computer and Information Science at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). I am working on information retrieval and semantic search under the supervision of Prof. Svein Erik Bratsberg and Prof. Krisztian Balog (University of Stavanger). My PhD research has received several awards, including  the best paper honorable mention award at the ICTIR 2016 conference and the best short paper honorable mention award at the SIGIR 2017 conference.

My research is focused on semantic and entity-oriented search using knowledge bases. Specifically, my main goal is to improve various tasks of entity-oriented search such as query understanding,  entity linking, retrieval, and summarization. 

Research interests:

 Information retrieval;  Semantic search; Machine learning; Structural indexing; Computational linguistics
