At the university's Institute for Computing and Information Sciences (ICIS), Hannes Mühleisen will research the architecture and design of analytical data management systems. "Those systems are crucial components to modern data-driven applications, and their development is critical to getting a grip on the big questions of our digital society. Through our research, we aim to create universally-useful software artefacts that change the way how data systems work in the real world."

"I am looking forward to joining ICIS to teach and hopefully inspire the next generations of computer scientists, and to collaborating with Radboud’s research teams on Data Engineering challenges", adds Mühleisen.
