A passionately rational man.
I am a Maître de Conférences (Associate Professor) at the Institute National des Sciences Appliquées (INSA) one of France’s leading engineering schools situated in Lyon
In particular, I am member of the DB Team at LIRIS, lead by Prof. Angela Bonifati.
My research interests span across Stream Processing, Knowledge Graphs, Query and Programming Languages.
I have a Ph.D. in Computer Science, obtained from the Department of Electronics and Information of the Politecnico di Milano, under the supervision of Prof. Emanuele Della Valle.
My Ph.D. dissertation, titled “Velocity on the Web”, investigated the velocity aspects that concern the Web environment and will be soon published as a book by Springer.
Prior to joining INSA I was an Assistant Professor at the University of Tartu, Estonia. I was member of Data System Group, founded by Prof. Sheri Sakr (R.I.P.). From April 2020 until February 2021, I lead the group ad-interim when Prof. Ahmed Award suceeded Prof. Sakr. There I still supervise Mohamed Ragab, a PhD student working on Big Graph Processing.
During my career I also developed several industrial collaborations both for research and consulting.
I negotiated and managed two research projects with the Nordic Institute for Interoperability of Software (NIIS). The projects (one of which is still ongoing) focuses on X- ROAD, the backbone of Estonia and Finland’s e-government infrastructure.
I have an ongoing collaborations with Neo4j, InfluxData, and Confluent Inc.
My office is located in Bâtiment Nautibus, 69100 Villeurbanne, France
