Research

My main area of research can be broadly categorized as that of Data Integration. In my early career I have focused on various aspects of data semantics in cooperative information systems, including transaction management in a Web environment and schema matching. Since 2008, I have investigated aspects of uncertainty in data integration. The recent wave of big data fits well with my research agenda, which focuses on aspects of veracity in data integration (or simply put Big Data Integration).
