Currently, Dr. Keating is pursuing research into database driven web applications and web personalization, including improving children's reading by personalizing web-based stories for children. He will showcase his course "Information Technology and Communications: Introduction to eBusiness" and will also discuss co- and extra-curricular applications of web-based technology at Stevens.
