Join us for a Tech Talk on Cloud Computing and Big Data with Dr. Mirek Riedewald!
Dr. Mirek will discuss challenges and solutions for managing and analyzing big data in the cloud. This includes concrete application scenarios, distributed algorithms, and a summary of their implementation in popular big-data processing platforms such as Hadoop MapReduce and Apache Spark. He will conclude with a brief discussion of ongoing projects that provide opportunities for Master’s students to gain research and development expertise.
About the Speaker
Mirek Riedewald research interests are in databases and data mining, with an emphasis on designing scalable analysis techniques for data-driven science. He has collaborated successfully with scientists from different domains, including ornithology, physics, mechanical and aerospace engineering, and astronomy. This work resulted in novel approaches for data warehousing, data stream processing, prediction, and parallel data processing using computer clusters.
He is now focusing on exploratory analysis of massive observational data and techniques for automated reconstruction of structure and dynamics of neural circuits, a crucial step toward understanding the functionality of the brain.
Prior to joining Northeastern University, Riedewald was a research associate at Cornell University. He also held visiting research positions at Microsoft Research in Redmond, Washington and at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics in Germany. His work has been published in the premier peer-reviewed data management research venues like ACM SIGMOD, VLDB, IEEE ICDE, and IEEE TKDE, as well as in domain science journals.
