General Information

I am a Professor of Computer Science, member of the LIG (Laboratoire d'Informatique de Grenoble) at the University of Grenoble in France, where I have moved from Paris-Sud (LRI) . My areas of research are Knowledge Representation and Information Integration. In particular, I work on the following topics: logic-based mediation between distributed data sources, query rewriting using views, automatic classification and clustering of semistructured data (e.g., XML documents), peer to peer data sharing and distributed reasoning for the Semantic Web. I am involved in several projects combining artificial intelligence and database techniques for information integration.
