Hakan Ferhatosmanoglu is a Professor and Deputy Head of Computer Science at the University of Warwick, and a Turing Fellow at ATI, the UK's national institute for data science and artificial intelligence. His research interest is in building software systems for scalable data analytics, integrating multiple sources of information and protecting the privacy of data subjects. An example application is learning aggregate mobility patterns over multiple sources of spatio-temporal data. He has published in leading venues of data systems and analytics research and served in the technical committees of VLDB, KDD, SIGMOD, ICDE, ICDM, ECML/PKDD, CIKM, and SIGIR.

Dr. Ferhatosmanoglu received his PhD in CS from University of California, Santa Barbara in 2001. Before joining Warwick, he was a tenured professor at the Ohio State U. (OSU), Bilkent U., visited Max Planck Institute (MPI) for Informatics and MPI for Software Systems with a research award by Humboldt Foundation. He has been the Principal Investigator of more than 15 externally funded grants. His research has been supported by government agencies including the US Department of Energy and US National Science Foundation, and companies including Pfizer and IBM. He has closely worked with industrial partners in developing commercial data analytics and machine learning solutions. He supervised more than 40 graduate students, including 10 PhDs to completion. Advisees moved to work in faculty positions at major research universities, and companies including Google, Amazon, Intel, Microsoft, Teradata, Oracle.

He received several Research Career Awards, from the US Department of Energy, US National Science Foundation, Turkish Academy of Sciences, and Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in Germany. He received an IBM Faculty Award, a Lumley Research Award for outstanding research and a large interdisciplinary research award at OSU.
