I am a Researcher in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Toronto, working with Renée J. Miller and the Data Curation Lab.


Nothing is certain, but death and taxes ... and, please don't forget, data! What drew me to the field of data management was, first, the possibility of managing data in all its nuances (think of data in a variety of data formats, often uncleaned or ambiguous), and, second, the unsurprising fact that, with the aid of models and algorithms, we can still manage to make very good use of it. My research focuses on developing techniques to support efficient and practical use of schema mappings in information integration, and in particular, on embracing incompleteness in the context of data-driven decision making. My dissertation work contributes to several areas, including information integration, data translation, and business intelligence.

  Short Bio

I completed a M.Eng degree in Computer Engineering and a PhD in Computer Science, both from the University of Toronto. Over the last few years, I have been involved in many of the projects hosted by the Bell University Laboratories (BUL) initiative (2000 to 2005) and the NSERC Business Intelligence Network, for which I am Associate Director.
