Asterios Katsifodimos is an assistant professor of Computer Science at TU Delft. Asterios' research focuses on scalable data management, and more specifically on parallel stream processing, systems for scalable AI/ML, and data integration.

Before joining TU Delft, Asterios worked at the SAP Innovation Center in Berlin, working on scale-out architectures for machine learning inference and training. Before SAP, he was a senior researcher at the database systems group in TU Berlin. Asterios received his PhD from INRIA Saclay & Université Paris-Sud in 2013, and his MSc, BSc degrees from the University of Cyprus.

Asterios received the SIGMOD Research Highlights Award in 2016 and the EDBT Best Paper award in 2019.
