Bahareh Arab, Ph.D. Student

Bahareh Sadat Arab received her B.Sc in software computer engineering in 2006 from Azad University and M.S. degree in Computer Science in 2011 from University Putra Malaysia. She published papers related to web services and QoS in SOA. She worked as a software engineer in different companies for several years. Bahareh started her Ph.D. at the IIT DBGroup in Fall 2013. She is mainly working on adding provenance support to databases using temporal database techniques. This project is a collaboration between the Oracle Corporation and the IIT DBGroup. The initial focus is computing provenance for database updates and transactions.

Research Projects

I am involved in the following research projects:
  • GProM - A database-independent middleware for computing the provenance of queries, updates, and transactions
  • Provenace for Updates and Transactions - In this project, we study provenance models for update and transactions and their implementation through reenactment, a declarative replay technique which utilizes audit logs and temporal database technologies.
