It has contributed in the following areas: relational data models, snapshots and their semantics, active and temporal databases and object-oriented database systems. Results of our research have direct impact on applications dealing with huge amounts of data and resources largely distributed in pervasive environments, such as data spaces, e-science, hardware, software and firmware observation, autonomic systems, and the Semantic Web.
