Welcome to Mohamed Aturban's Homepage


I am currently a PhD student joining Web Science and Digital Libraries Research Group (WS-DL) in Computer Science Department at Old Dominion University (Norfolk, Virginia). I am working under the supervision of Dr. Michele Weigle, and my co-adviser is Prof. Michael L. Nelson. My research interests include: Web Science, Digital Library, Web Archiving, and Web Annotation.

I received my Master's degree in Computer Science in 2011 from New Mexico State University (Las Cruces, NM) and my Bachelor of Science degree from University of Tripoli (Tripoli, Libya)
