Our Team

 

In Wrapidity we combine passion for solving hard problems for real customers with a drive for pushing the envelope in technology and science. The technical members of the team all have been previously involved in startups and build solutions for customers ranging from one-people companies to multi-national media conglomerates. They have jointly published more than 500 DBLP-listed publications with over 20k cumulative citations.  

Tim Furche is Wrapidity’s CTO. He has been extracting data from the web for nearly a decade, starting from one of the most-cited works on XPath during his undergraduate studies. When not extracting data, he loves looking into query languages and large-scale data management. He has managed a number of large-scale research grants (>$12M in total) and teams and currently also holds an appointment as Lecturer at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Oxford.
