Seokki Lee, Ph.D. Student

I have a master in Computer Science and Engineering from Hanyang University in 2009 and Engineering Management from California State University Northridge in 2014. I joined the IIT DBGroup from 2014 Fall after several years of work experience.

Awards

  • IIT Dissertation Fellowship (2019)
  • IEEE ICDE Travel Grant (2017)

Teaching

I have been TA for the following courses:
  • 2019 Spring: CS525 - Advanced Database Organization
  • 2017 Fall: CS525 - Advanced Database Organization
  • 2017 Spring: CS525 - Advanced Database Organization
  • 2016 Spring: CS520 - Data Integration, Warehousing, and Provenance

Research Projects

My main research interests are Databases, Data Exchange and Integration, and Data Provenance. I am involved in the following research projects:
  • GProM - A database-independent middleware for computing the provenance of queries, updates, and transactions
  • PUGS - PUGS is a unified framework for capturing why and why-not provenance of Datalog queries with negation and for automatic generation of concise provenance summaries.
  • Vagabond - Automatic generation of explanations for data exchange errors.

Collaborators

Through these research projects I am collaborating with:
