Database Systems

The database group’s research is focused on building the data management infrastructure for the twenty-first century, with particular emphasis on issues surrounding Big Data, including stream processing, approximate query answering, text mining, data integration, information extraction, and data sharing. We have a strong emphasis on database usability. Our approach is to understand at a fundamental level what it is about the data model and representation that make it hard to use and query.

In addition, we have a very strong data science effort, with particular emphasis on the effective integration and efficient querying of materials and biological data.
