Asterios Katsifodimos

Assistant Professor, Delft University of Technology (TU Delft).
Member of the Web Information Systems group.

Before joining TU Delft, I was part of the SAP Innovation Center in Berlin, working on scale-out architectures for machine learning inference and training. Before SAP, I was a senior researcher at the database systems group in TU Berlin, headed by Volker Markl. I received my PhD from INRIA Saclay & Universite Paris-Sud in 2013, under the supervision of Ioana Manolescu. Prior to that, I was a member of the High Performance Computing systems Lab (HPCL), at the University of Cyprus, working with Marios Dikaiakos.

My research interests include scalable data management, Big Data analytics systems, database language models, materialized views, query optimization, and distributed systems.
