The WUME Laboratory

Incubating both researchers and ideas. 


Web Understanding, Modeling, and Evaluation Lab


The WUME Lab houses a research group dedicated to studying search, mining and structure of the web of relationships and other information contained within human-created networks such as the WWW, social networks and citation networks. We are particularly interested in web search, link analysis models, spam for search engines (and other networks), and models of trust and authority. It is directed by Prof. Brian D. Davison and is a part of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Lehigh University.
