Phd Fellow Data-intensive systems research group Department of Computer Science Aarhus University
I am a third year graduate student in the data-intensive systems research group at Aarhus University, under the supervision of Prof. Ira Assent. I recently returned from a visit at the Data Systems Laboratory at Harvard University under the supervision of Prof. Stratos Idreos. My research is focused on how to achieve efficient and scalable data processing and querying, using modern heterogeneous hardware. I have been focusing on how to integrate the graphical processing unit (GPU) in advanced query processing, and how to design portable query algorithms that performs well on CPUs and GPUs alike. Specifically I have been focusing on algorithms for the skyline query operator. At Harvard I focused on how to physically and logically partition columns of data to optimize for both update and read performance as part of the RUM conjecture project. Before I started my PhD, I received both my B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Computer Science from Aarhus University.
