Kyumars Sheykh Esmaili joined the Bell Labs Antwerp
at the end of 2014.
Previously, Kyumars was a research engineer at Technicolor's R&I Lab
in Paris, France, where he was part of a team that is building a
large-scale, data-driven monitoring and troubleshooting system for home
networks. Prior to that, he was a research fellow at Nanyang
Technological University (NTU), Singapore. At NTU, he worked on
improving the reliability and storage efficiency of big data analytics
frameworks (i.e., Apache Hadoop).
Kyumars obtained his PhD degree in
computer science from ETH Zurich, Switzerland, in November 2011. His PhD
thesis dealt with a range of conceptual challenges facing data stream
processing in complex applications. Among his contributions were (a)
establishing a schema for data streams and exploiting it for efficient
processing, (b) defining lifecycle semantics for continuous queries, and
(c) addressing the problem of provenance management on data streams.
Kyumars holds a master's and a bachelor's degree from Sharif University
of Technology, Tehran, Iran, and has had short-term affiliations with
University of Kurdistan as lecturer and adjunct professor.
