Research Profile

Ekaterini Ioannou is Assistant Professor in the Data Mining group in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). Her research focuses on information integration with an emphasis on the challenges of managing data with uncertainties, heterogeneity or correlations. She also investigates blocking-based mechanisms for entity resolution over very large data collections as well as unstructured data (e.g., information from the Web). More recently, Ioannou started working on achieving a deeper integration of information extraction tasks within databases, and on efficiently retrieving analytics over graphs/hypergraphs with evolving data. 

Academic Background

Ekaterini Ioannou obtained a PhD degree from the Leibniz Universität Hannover, Germany, in the area of Information Integration. She also holds an MSc degree in Computer Science from Saarland University and the Max Planck Institut für Informatik (MPI), an MSc degree in Advanced Information Technologies and a BSc degree in Computer Science from the University of Cyprus. Before joining the Eindhoven University of Technology, Ekaterini worked as a lecturer at the Faculty of Pure and Applied Sciences at the Open University of Cyprus, a research collaborator at the Technical University of Crete, and as an Independent Expert for the European Commission.
