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.
