General Information

I am a Professor of Computer Science, member of the LIG ( Laboratoire d'Informatique de Grenoble), in the SLIDE group, at the University of Grenoble Alpes in France, where I have moved from Paris-Saclay(LRI) . My areas of research are Knowledge Representation and Information Integration. In particular, I work on the following topics: ontology-based data access, logic-based mediation between distributed data sources, query rewriting using views, data linkage and distributed reasoning for the Semantic Web. I am involved in several projects combining artificial intelligence and database techniques for information integration.
