Αικατερίνη Ιωάννου

 
I am a lecturer at the Open University of Cyprus, faculty of Pure and Applied Sciences. Previously, I was a research collaborator at the SoftNet Lab, at the Technical University of Crete in Greece, working with Prof. Minos Garofalakis. From September 2012 to June 2013 I was adjunct faculty at the Open University of Cyprus, teaching the course 'Advanced Web technologies and Programming'. I received a Ph.D. degree from the Leibniz Universität Hannover, Germany, in the area of information integration. During my Ph.D. studies I was working at the L3S Research Center in Hannover, under the supervision of Prof. Wolfgang Nejdl. I have obtained an M.Sc. degree in Computer Science from Saarland University and the Max-Planck-Institut für Informatik (MPI), an M.Sc. degree in Advanced Information Technologies and a B.Sc. degree in Computer Science from the University of Cyprus. My research interests are in the areas of information integration, entity linkage for heterogeneous data with uncertainties, blocking-based entity resolution for large size collections, and management of uncertain data using statistical models.

My research work focuses on information integration and more specifically on the challenges of managing data (i.e., relational tables or graphs) with uncertainties, heterogeneity and/or correlations. I have also participated in a number of EU funded research projects, e.g., QualiMaster, OKKAM and NEPOMUK. The last few years I am also contributing as an external evaluator for the European Commission, evaluating proposals requesting funding as well as ongoing funded projects.
