  • Oct 2016: A talk on a system building agenda for data integration (and data science). The Magellan system described below is an example of realizing this agenda for entity matching.

  • Jul 2016: Launching Magellan, a new project to build an entity matching management system. Magellan guides users through the EM workflow, step by step. It provides automated tools to address the "pain points" of the steps, and these tools seek to cover the entire EM workflow. Finally, tools are built on top of the Python data science and big data eco-system.

Research   (Group's Homepage)

Data management, focusing on data integration, data science, big data, and data-centric software eco-systems. My work has charted new directions or bet on emerging directions that I believe would become fundamental for data management. I have been working on five such directions. The two current directions (from 2015, see group's homepage):

The past three directions (from 2000-2010): In between, from 2010-2014 I spent some time in Silicon Valley, at a startup and an e-commerce company, putting my work in the above three directions to use, and learning a ton about doing things "in the wild".
