Justin Levandoski

Justin Levandoski I am a researcher in the database group at Microsoft Research. I am interested in a broad range of topics dealing with large-scale data management systems. My current interests include main-memory databases, database support for new hardware platforms, transaction processing, cloud computing, and support for new data-intensive applications, such as social/recommender systems. Past work includes non-blocking join algorithms, Resource Description Framework (RDF) data management, and context and preference-aware data management.

Prior to joining Microsoft, I received a PhD from the University of Minnesota and a BA from Carleton College. During my PhD, I was the main architect of CareDB, a context and preference-aware database system.
