Asterios Katsifodimos

Researcher at Technical University of Berlin, working with Volker Markl and DIMA.

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 data management, Big Data analytics systems, parallel processing language models, materialized views, query optimization, and distributed systems.
