Herodotos Herodotou

I am a Senior Research SDE in the Data Management, Exploration and Mining (DMX) group in Microsoft Research. I received my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from Duke University in May 2012. My dissertation work titled "Automatic Tuning of Data-Intensive Analytical Workloads" presents a novel dynamic optimization approach that can form the basis for tuning workload performance automatically across different tuning scenarios and systems.

My research interests are in large-scale Data Processing Systems and Database Systems. In particular, my work focuses on ease-of-use, manageability, and automated tuning of both centralized and distributed data-intensive computing systems. In addition, I am interested in applying database techniques in other areas like scientific computing, bioinformatics, and numerical analysis.
