Database and theoretical computer science research group
Address: Hasselt University, Agoralaan, B–3590 Diepenbeek, Belgium
My main area of research is that of
data, information, and knowledge. Currently, I am mostly interested in databases and query evaluation in a distributed context. In the past, I worked on datamining in bioinformatics, XML schema inference, and logic in databases. Most of my publications can be found on DBLP, Google Scholar or DSPACE. Some papers can be found on PubMed. For an overview of recent work click here.
