2010 - ACM Fellow For advances in XML data management and distributed information systems.

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Database
  • Operating system
  • Programming language

Donald Kossmann mainly focuses on Database, Query optimization, View, Query language and Sargable. His Database research integrates issues from Distributed computing, Set, Benchmark, Range and Cloud computing. His research in Set intersects with topics in Systems architecture, Information retrieval, Online algorithm and Skyline.

Donald Kossmann interconnects SQL, Theoretical computer science, Spatial query, Relational database and Materialized view in the investigation of issues within Query optimization. His work carried out in the field of View brings together such families of science as Online aggregation and Database model. His Sargable research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Query by Example, Query expansion and Web query classification.

His most cited work include:

  • The Skyline operator (2062 citations)
  • Shooting stars in the sky: an online algorithm for skyline queries (848 citations)
  • The state of the art in distributed query processing (832 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Donald Kossmann mainly focuses on Database, World Wide Web, Distributed computing, Data mining and Cloud computing. His study in View, Query optimization, Database design, Database testing and SQL falls within the category of Database. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Query language, Web query classification and Sargable.

The concepts of his Sargable study are interwoven with issues in Query by Example and Query expansion. The various areas that Donald Kossmann examines in his SQL study include Spatial query, Set and Benchmark. His Distributed computing research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Scalability and Hash function.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Database (28.78%)
  • World Wide Web (12.92%)
  • Distributed computing (12.55%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Cloud computing (11.81%)
  • Database (28.78%)
  • Price equation (3.32%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His main research concerns Cloud computing, Database, Price equation, Distributed computing and Information retrieval. His Cloud computing research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Set, Hash function, State and Encryption. His study in SQL and Data management is carried out as part of his Database studies.

The SQL study combines topics in areas such as High availability, Spatial query, Data integration and SOCRATES. His Distributed computing study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Process and Server. His work deals with themes such as Field, Raw data and Index, which intersect with Information retrieval.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The Beckman report on database research (62 citations)
  • FASTER: A Concurrent Key-Value Store with In-Place Updates (48 citations)
  • Mison: a fast JSON parser for data analytics (40 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Database
  • Operating system
  • Programming language

Donald Kossmann spends much of his time researching Distributed computing, Scalability, Information retrieval, Field and Key. His Distributed computing research includes themes of Process, Data structure, Joins and Database. Donald Kossmann carries out multidisciplinary research, doing studies in Database and Concerto.

Donald Kossmann works mostly in the field of Scalability, limiting it down to topics relating to Data management and, in certain cases, Computer network. His studies in Information retrieval integrate themes in fields like Ambiguity, Syntax, Parsing and Index. His study in Key is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Value and Benchmark.
