Research Interests: Database Systems, Database Provenance




Research at NCIBI

My general research interest is in designing and building database systems to maximize their usability. Meta-data plays an important role in helping users interpret data. For example, data provenance, which describes how and from what source data the derived data is produced, can help the users to understand the content of the data, to determine the reliability of the data, to debug the data, etc. My current work is in managing meta-data: how to model them, how to store and retrieve them, and how to use them to answer the users’ questions about the data.
