Milos Nikolic

Milos earned his PhD from EPFL in 2016 in database systems and in particular efficient incremental maintenance. He has been a departmental lecturer in Computer Science at Oxford from Sept 2016 to Aug 2018 before joining the University of Edinburgh as a tenure-track lecturer in Databases. Milos' research focuses on the design and implementation of data-intensive systems. His work studies the incremental computation of complex analytical queries, such as database queries and machine learning models, in local and distributed streaming environments using novel approaches to query optimization and compilation. He contributes to all aspects of the FDB project, with a current focus on incremental maintenance of analytical workloads.
