My research spans the areas of Big Data, databases systems and
management, with emphasis on graph database, graph query models and
languages, distributed and dynamic graphs. My current work has
concentrated on effective graph analytics in emerging applications such
as knowledge graphs, network security and social newtork analysis. My
broader interests include data quality, network science, web services
and information visualization.
2016.8 I will teach "Big Data" (CPT_S 415, Tu/Th 16:15-17:30, Sloan 163) in Fall 2016.
paper "Functional Dependencies for Graphs" is accepted by SIGMOD 16.
paper "Fast Top-K Search in Knowledge Graphs" is accepted by ICDE 16.
2015.12 I will teach a new course "Advanced Databases" (CPT_S 580-06, Tu/Th 9:15-10:30) in Spring 2016.
paper "Adding Counting Quantifiers to Graph Patterns" is accepted by SIGMOD 16.
