I’m Sebastián Ferrada, a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Computer Science (IDA) at Linköping University. I obtained my PhD from Universidad de Chile with my thesis “Similarity-based Web Queries”. My research interests include Federated Database Systems, Multimedia Databases and Linked Data. I’m currently researching the interoperability between heterogeneous graph databases.

Besides research I really enjoy teaching. I’m currently teaching the Advanced Databases course and I’m a lab assistant at the Relational Database course, both from IDA.
