Database Theory and Systems

  • Data mining-searching for hidden information in large amounts of data
  • Long-term preservation and access to scientific data, enabling computational access to large-scale data, tools for metadata and provenance capture, data repositories, cyberinfrastructure for large-scale data analysis, geoinformatics 
  • Algorithms with fast average time for the conjunctive normal form (CNF), computational biology
  • Database theory and data mining
  • Access Control for XML (ACXESS) - focusing on developing a framework for flexible access constraint specification, representation and efficient enforcement
