RESEARCH ACTIVITY
My research activity concerns on the spatio-temporal databases and in particular on spatio-temporal databases design and spatio-temporal modeling.
I worked on the proposal of an original spatio-temporal conceptual model, called ChronoGeoGraph (CGG for short), that extends the classical Enhanced Entity-Relationship (EER) model with constructs for representing spatio-temporal information. CGG pairs EER constructs with a number of additional features for spatial and temporal information management. The CGG model is supported by a software development tool that includes a module for the visual synthesis of CGG schemas and two modules for their translation into either relational schemas or XML Schema documents.
Currently, I�m working to extend this work in several directions including the following ones: to validate the proposed framework on other complex real-world case studies, to provide the CGG model with a formal semantics, to improve the software tool by adding new functionalities to the various modules, to support the automatic integration of different CGG schemas, to define and implement an inverse mapping from logical schemas into CGG schemas, to create suitable user interfaces to deal with spatio-temporal database instances.
