Research Interests
We are currently interested in the following topics but are not limited to that:

  • Metadata management for scientific data, such as in the medical domain (e.g., clinical and epidemiological studies) and others
  • Interface descriptions and exchange formats, such as Object Data Model (ODM) and Interoperable Health Environment (IHE), and their application in different scientific domains
  • Scientific OLAP applications including i2b2 and Lens Data Portal (used in the LIFE Data Portal) and their application in Data Sharing scenarios
  • Data Sharing applications
  • Integration and analysis of geo-referenced data, such as from wearables and environmental sensors
  • Data management in Blockchain scenarios
