My research spans the areas of Big Data, databases systems and
management, with emphasis on graph data, graph query models and
languages, distributed and dynamic graphs. My current work has
concentrated on effective data 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.
