What is ontology? How is it relevant to research?

Will honestly right off the bat I don’t have a clue what ontology and actually never heard anyone else talk about it till today.

So what is ontology from what I read on the Internet ontology is the study of natural being which is also known as reality.

So to me this word ontology is basically determining if something is real or not. Which I think it ties in to research real well as we are constantly trying to find out whether something is real or not.

What is epistemology? How is it relevant to research?

Then there is epistemology which is basically means the theory of knowledge as i can go on about the other meaning of it but none will be ever correct or wrong as there is is no perfect meaning for this word.
 

What is the connection between ontology and epistemology in a research context?
