Research

  • My current research interests mainly concern similarity and preference queries, both from the modeling and the algorithmic point of view. I'm also interested in techniques for efficiently and effectively retrieving, browsing and annotating image databases
  • In past years, together with Marco Patella and Pavel Zezula, I designed the M-tree, an access method able to index generic metric spaces
  • I coordinate the activity of the MultiMedia DataBase Group at DEIS
