Elvira Pino is an associate professor at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Spain, where she received her PhD in 1999. At the beginning of her research career, she worked on Logic Programming, specifically, on how categorical foundations together with a suitable algebraic formulation could contribute to solve some problems existing at that time. In recent years, her research has focused on graph transformation and synchronization and, more recently, on the definition of a navigational graph logic as a first step to provide algebraic and logical foundations for graph databases which is her present ongoing work.
