Wolfgang Gatterbauer is an associate professor in the Khoury College of Computer Sciences at Northeastern University. Prior to joining Northeastern, he was a postdoctoral fellow in the database group at the University of Washington, then became an assistant professor in the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University.

Gatterbauer’s main research interests are data and information management. One of his goals is to extend the capabilities of modern data management systems in generic ways and to allow them to support seemingly difficult novel functionalities. His work has been published in venues such as SIGMOD, VLDB, AAAI, and WWW. He is a recipient of the NSF Career award and “best-of-conference” mentions from VLDB 2015 and SIGMOD 2017.
