Mario Nascimento’s research expertise in Computing Science lies more within the domain of database management, most specifically spatiotemporal data management and wireless sensor data management.  Recently, he has focused on so-called “Trip Planning Queries” where the objective is to optimize routes (trips) of user(s) given constraints such as time-dependency, order of points-of-interest to be visited.  He is Chair of the NSERC Computing Science Liaison Committee, member of the CRA’s Board of Directors and a founding member of the Albertan-Bavarian Energy-Environment research network ABBY-Net.

Research Interests
