Davide Ceolin is a tenure-track reseracher in the Information Access group at Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI) in Amsterdam and a lecturer for the User Centric Data Science group at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. His research interests are centered around the challenge of assessing the quality of information online, ranging from the assessment of credibility and veracity of information, to the analysis of its trustworthiness and provenance. Currently, he serves the Credible Web W3C community group and is a member of the Credibility Coalition. Davide obtained a PhD in Computer Science from the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam in 2014.


My research tackles information quality assessment online from a broad perspective. As such, I am interested both in the development of computational methods to assess it, as well as in the socio-economic impact of the quality of the information online.

Topics I deal with in my research are:

  • Crowdsourcing for information quality and credibility assessment;
  • Distributed system for information quality assessment;
  • Theoretical Information Quality Models;
  • Logic Frameworks for Trust and Information Quality Management;
  • Analysis of the Perception of Social Phenomena;
  • Quality Assessment of Semantic Publishing.
