Multi-model data management 

As more businesses realized that data, in all forms and sizes, is critical to making the best possible decisions, we see the continued growth of systems that support a massive volume of non-relational or unstructured forms of data. Our research focus is to develop new theories and algorithms of a novel multi-model database management system to manage both well-structured data and NoSQL data. Our approach will reduce integration issues, simplify operations, and eliminate migration issues between relational and NoSQL data.
