Short Bio

Olga Papaemmanouil has been an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Brandeis University since January 2009. She received her undergraduate degree in Computer Science and Informatics at the University of Patras, Greece in 1999. In 2001, she received her Sc.M. in Information Systems at the University of Economics and Business, Athens, Greece. She then joined the Computer Science Department at Brown University, where she completed her Ph.D in Computer Science at Brown University in 2008. Her research interests are in  database system  and distributed data management with a recent focus on cloud databases and data exploration. She is the recipient of an NSF Career Award (2013) and a Paris Kanellakis Fellowship from Brown University (2002).
