Research   (Group's Homepage)

My work has charted new directions or bet on emerging directions that I believe would become fundamental for data management. Current directions:

Past directions: knowledge bases/graphs (2004-2012), crowdsourcing (2002-2015), schema/ontology matching (2000-2010). In between, from 2010-2014 I spent some time in Silicon Valley, putting my work in these directions to use, and learning a ton about doing things "in the wild".
