Prof. Dr. Maria-Esther Vidal


I am a full-professor at the Computer Science Department, Universidad Simón Bolívar (2005-Current).

With the support of my students and colleagues, I lead the Semantic Web Group and have developed a variety of tools to solve a wide range of Semantic Data Management Problems. I am mainly interested in the development of techniques to address the problems of: Publishing and Consuming (Linked) Open Data, Query Rewriting, Optimization and Execution, Ranking, Link Prediction, and Benchmarking and Evaluation. I am the Dean Assistant for Research and Development in Applied Science and Engineering at the Universidad Simón Bolívar (2011-Current). I love to teach: Symbolic Logic, Databases, and Semantic Web.

I have affiliated at the Universidad Simón Bolívar since 1988, and I have advised and mentored more than 80 students (65 undergraduate, 10 Master, and 7 PhD). As a PhD student, I worked with Dr. Louiqa Raschid (University of Maryland, College Park).
