Hi. I am an associate professor in Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Michigan. My research interests include databases, information extraction, data integration, and data mining. I'm a member of the Software Systems Lab and the Michigan Database Group.

My students and I currently work on projects in four areas of data mangement:

My group publishes primarily in database conferences, but we also make contributions to systems-, AI-, and Econ-related venues.

In addition to our intellectual contributions, we are proud of the practical impact of our work. Some relevant examples include the Hadoop open-source project; various search engine features based on the WebTables work; and Lattice Data, a startup based around information extraction. More exciting stuff to come.
