About Me

I have been a Lecturer (equivalent to Assistant Professor) in the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh since September 2016. Prior to this, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Information Systems of the Vienna University of Technology from November 2014 until September 2016, and a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Oxford from October 2011 until October 2014. My research interests are database theory with emphasis on query languages, knowledge representation and reasoning, computational logic and its applications to computer science. My current work mostly focuses on theoretical and practical aspects of query answering in the presence of ontologies. I have published more than sixty papers, many of them in leading international conferences and journals. I have served on the PCs of numerous international conferences and workshops, including the top-tier database and AI conferences (PODS, ICDT, IJCAI, AAAI, and KR). I have also given invited talks and tutorials at international workshops and summer schools.
