Education

Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Freiburg in 1998, both in Germany.
M.S. in Computer Science from the Technical University of Karlsruhe in 1992.

Research Interests

Professor Ludaescher's primary research interests are in scientific data management, in particular scientific data integration, scientific workflow management, and knowledge-based (semantic) extensions thereof. He is also interested in foundations of databases, e.g., query languages and query rewriting. Professor Ludaescher is actively contributing to several large scale research collaborations dealing with scientific data management, including the NSF/ITR Geosciences Network (GEON), the NSF/ITR Science Environment for Ecological Knowledge (SEEK), and the DOE Scientific Data Management Center (SciDAC-SDM). He is also an affiliated faculty member of the UC Davis Genome Center and a Fellow of the San Diego Supercomputer Center.
