I am interested in very theoretical research projects having an immediate fallback in practical use case scenarios. Some of my interests are the following:
- Theoretical Background:
- (Relational) Database Theory (modeling, query languages)
- Conformance Checking and Trace Alignments
- Graph Theory and Query
- Inconsistency Metrics
- Practical Use Case Scenarios:
- Recommendation Systems
- Data Analytics
- Zero Model-Fitting (no Neural-Network, no Bayesian Model, no Markov Logic Network) AI
This entails the development of the following projects:
- KnoBAB: a fast knowledge base supporing efficient long with payloads for data-driven temporal queries.
- SimulatorBridger: a simulator bridging mobility data/simulator with Edge/Cloud communication infrastructure for SmarCity environments.
Projects as a Student
As a Graduate (G), Undergraduate (U), and PhD (P) student, I developed the following code:
- (P) As a visiting PhD student at the Universität Leipzig, I contribute to the FOSS Gradoop project with my own fork. I’ll implement some graph operators.
- (P) DISeASE: Implementing The Watson Project from scratch for ICD-9-CM codes recognition (feat. Alexander Pollok)
- (G) A Jason’s extension showing the occurring communications between the agents, using GraphStream (feat. Giulio Biagini and Gianluca Iselli). With the same group I coded an Omnet++ simulation implementing a P2P algorithm, using C++11 and GraphBoost Library
- (G) SocialSim: a dynamic (Social) Network Simulator using both agent model and event model simulation (feat. Elena Tea Russo).
- (U) Amppercent7: a Multi-Chat Project developed with Android SDK and Beem-Asmack library.
- (U) UMView with Guardian Angels: an implenentation of the “Guardian Angels” technique inside the UMView SystemCall Virtual Machine. More details (feat. Gianluca Iselli and Matteo Martelli)
- (U) Orthopediatrics: an undergraduate project for the Software Engineering course. It uses Easier Java Persistence (EJP) for persistence issues. (feat. Fabian Priftaj, Matej Torok and Paolo de Luca)
- (U) Proxy miniHTTP/miniHTML with prefetching: an implementation of a multithreaded sytstem for caching purposes with time-validity checking.
As a student, I wrote a lot of very short projects. Those are:
- Running an R-script as a daemon
- loaderPlugin: a single-header library used in SocialSim for defining a PlugIn repository
- How-To on implementing iterators on C++11
- krouter: implements a Omnet++ router that emits packets to k different ports with different assigned probabilities
- parse_commands_http: parses HTTP headers in C++11
- block_tcp: given a list of IPs and URLs, blocks incoming and outcoming TCP packets
- Cleaner.py: a Python scripts that removes e-mail from known spammers or social networks.
