Personal Research Statement:

I am interested in computer-aided information exchange/integration. I think ontology is useful for this task, because it can describe not only the taxonomy of the domain but also the underlying structure of the domain theory.
I am investigating a case study of a systematic methodology to translate ontology from arbitrary representation, and a methodology to minimize the loss in the translation using the logical aspect of the ontology.
I am conveying this investigation with an example to convert VHDL CAD data into a Generic Frame Knowledge Base, using Ontolingua as an translating tool.
