PhD. Thesis

A major part of my PhD. thesis involves visualization of topics in the retrieved set of documents to facilitate topic-based feedback and navigation through search results. I developed two topic-based search and navigation interfaces, one for searching through Wikipedia, and the second for searching through the EPO granted patents, the links of which are provided below.
