Personal profile

Research interests

Ekaterini is an assistant professor of Information Management, previously worked at the Eindhoven University of Technology, Open University of Cyprus, and adjunct faculty at EPFL in Switzerland. Her research focuses on data management with an emphasis on the challenges of data collections with uncertainties, heterogeneity or correlations. She also investigates aspects related to the integration of very large collections (e.g., blocking-based mechanisms for resolution over Web data). Recently, started working on investigating mechanisms for AI/DM approaches that promote responsible data science, such as transparency and interpretability.
