Mirek Riedewald is currently a Data Scientist at PredictAP, Inc., leading the AI research there. He is also an Associate Professor in the Khoury College of Computer Sciences at Northeastern University in Boston, USA. Prior to joining Northeastern University, he was a Research Associate at Cornell University and held visiting research positions at Microsoft Research in Redmond and at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics in Germany.
Prof. Riedewald's research interests are in databases, with an emphasis on designing data management and analysis techniques that scale in size, velocity, and dimensionality of data. He has collaborated successfully with scientists from various domains, including ornithology, physics, mechanical and aerospace engineering, and astronomy. This work resulted in novel approaches for data warehousing, data stream processing, machine learning, and parallel data-intensive computation in the cloud. Prof. Riedewald's work has been published in the premier peer-reviewed data management research venues and in domain-science journals. It received awards such as for Best Student Paper at ECML'07, Best Poster at ICDE'14, Best Paper at EDBT'21, as well as "best-of-conference" mentions at ICDE'14, DaWaK'17, ICDE'19, and PODS'21.
