Short Bio and Research Focus:


I am a Full Professor and Chair of the Database Systems and Information Management Group at the Technische Universität Berlin (TUB) and an Adjunct Full Professor at the University of Toronto. I am the Director of the Intelligent Analytics for Massive Data Research Group at DFKI and Director of the Berlin Big Data Center. In addition, I serve as the Secretary of the VLDB Endowment. My current research interests include new hardware architectures for information management, scalable processing and optimization of declarative data analysis programs, and scalable data science.

To date, I have presented over 200 invited talks in numerous industrial settings, major conferences, and research institutions worldwide. Furthermore, I have authored and published over 100 research papers at world-class scientific venues. Between 2010-2016, I was Speaker and Principal Investigator of the Stratosphere Research Unit funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), which resulted in numerous top-tier publications, as well as the Apache Flink big data analytics system. In 2014, I was named one of Germany's leading digital minds (Digitale Köpfe) by the German Informatics Society. Prior to joining TUB, I was a Research Staff Member and Project Leader at the IBM Almaden Research Center in San Jose, California.
