I have chaired the program committees of both the Annual ACM symposium on Principles of Database Systems (PODS) and the Annual IEEE symposium on Logic in Computer Science (LICS). From 2003 to 2006, I served as General Chair of the IEEE Symposium on Logic in Computer Science (LICS). At present, I serve a two-year term as General Chair of the ACM Symposium on Principles of Database Systems. I was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1993, and was elected a Fellow of the Association for Computing Machinery in 2005 “for contributions to logic in computer science.”
My research interests include logic in computer science, database theory, and computational complexity.
