Ricardo Baeza-Yates

Ricardo Baeza-Yates (born March 21, 1961) is a Chilean computer scientist and director of the [http://research.yahoo.com/ Yahoo! Research] labs at Barcelona, Spain and Santiago, Chile. His Ph.D. from the University of Waterloo was entitled "Efficient Text Searching", supervised by Gaston Gonnet and granted in 1989.

His research interests include:

* algorithms and data structures -- his contributions include algorithms for string search such as the Shift Or Algorithm, and algorithms for Fuzzy string searching, inspiring also the Bitap algorithm; co-author of the " [http://www.dcc.uchile.cl/~rbaeza/handbook/hbook.html Handbook of Algorithms and Data Structures] " ISBN 0-201-14218-X with his former Ph.D. advisor Gaston Gonnet,
* information retrieval -- co-author of " [http://sunsite.dcc.uchile.cl/irbook/links.html Modern Information Retrieval] " ISBN 0-201-39829-X,
* web retrieval and mining -- funded in 2002 and directed until 2005 the [http://www.cwr.cl/ Center for Web Research] in the Dept. of Computer Science of the University of Chile,
* text and multimedia databases,
* and information visualization.

On August 2008, Dr. Baeza-Yates was proposed for the Chilean National Prize in Applied Sciences "(Premio Nacional de Ciencias Aplicadas)" [ [http://diario.elmercurio.com/2008/08/01/ciencia_y_tecnologia/ciencia_y_tecnologia/noticias/5FEFED38-BBAA-4C29-8B49-DB8D574229C3.htm De estos candidatos surgirán los científicos que Chile premiará en 2008] , El Mercurio, August 1, 2008.]
