Graham Cormode

Professor, University of Warwick

Graham Cormode is a Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Warwick in the UK. His interests are in data stream analysis, massive data sets, and general algorithmic problems. Previously, he was a researcher at AT&T Labs–Research in New Jersey, and at Lucent Bell Laboratories, with focus on Network Management. Previously, he was a Postdoc researcher at the DIMACS research facility, which is located at Rutgers University.

He retains connections to DIMACS and to MassDAL–the Massive Data Analysis Lab. He did his PhD work at the Department of Computer Science at the University of Warwick, UK, and spent some time studying in Cleveland, Ohio at Case Western Reserve University with the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department.

His research is based in the area of Algorithms and Complexity, and his thesis was based around problems using distances between combinatorial objects. This includes issues related to communication efficiency and error correction; data compression and pattern matching; sketch and streaming algorithms; geometric problems such as nearest neighbors algorithms, and so on.
