An important theme of my work is to develop novel computing technologies and applications to enable more productive and rigorous scientific research that can make a difference to our lives and well-being.  More specifically, my research expertise is in the management and reasoning over provenance information, which records where things come from and how, in order to verify and assess the quality of scientific information resources.
