IIT Database Group

Xing Niu, Ph.D. student

I received my B.Sc in Computer Science in 2008 from Henan University and M.S. degree in Computer Science in 2011 from Henan University. I worked in Institute Of Software Chinese Academy Of Sciences for one year. I started my Ph.D. at the IIT DBGroup in Fall 2014.

Research

My main research interests are Databases, Data Provenance. I am involved in the following research projects:

Teaching

I have been TA for the following courses:
