Research Interests

Dr. Wang's research effort is focused on both data management and Semantic Web. Particular areas include RDF data management, graph databases, and large-scale knowledge processing. He also focuses on the practical applications of data management methods to process big data from various domains. He and his co-workers have developed a distributed large-scale RDF data server, call Jingwei, which can efficiently store and handle RDF data of billion triples. He has also developed a new method for efficiently executing regular path queries on large-scale RDF graph data.
