Research interests

It's the age of "big data" and the computer science community are currently having difficulties in managing the data from different perspectives (e.g., volume, volecity etc). One example is the evaluation of Regular Expressions (regex) which can be expensive when dealing with a large amount of data. Then, we can push things to another level by embedding regex to a query language, which is a common practice due to the high expressivity of regex. I'm currently undertaking a PhD study that investigates ways of optmising the performance of regex within the Semantic Web query language (SPARQL).
