      For contributions to probabilistic databases and semistructured data.

    I am a full professor in Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington. I teach databases and do research in data management. I apply formal theory to novel and difficult data management tasks. My past work has addressed various aspects of managing semistructured data, including query languages, compression, query processing and type inference. My recent work focuses on query processing, both on a single server and on a cluster, probabilistic databases, and finding causal connections in databases.
