Wim Martens represents Principles of Data Management and Formal Languages. This includes foundational aspects of query languages, schema languages, data models (relational, tree-structured, graph-structured, grid-structured), logics, and complexity. Typical problems we consider are complexity of query evaluation and -optimization, and expressiveness of query languages. Furthermore, his research has a focus on standards for data on the World Wide Web (XML, JSON, RDF, etc.).
