Research Interests

Currently, Peter's interests and contributions are in scalable, efficient and inferentially-accurate analytics and in large-scale data infrastructures. Throughout his career, Peter has been conducting research in large-scale Data Systems, including Distributed Data Management, Decentralized Search Engines and Information Retrieval, Social Networks/Systems, Distributed File Systems, Multimedia Systems, Storage Servers, Peer-to-Peer Systems, and Publish-Subscribe / Event-based Systems.

Short Bio

Peter Triantafillou is Professor of Data Systems and Head of the Data Sciences Theme at the Department of Computer Science at the University of Warwick, Fellow of the Alan Turing Institute , member of the Advisory Board of the Urban Big Data Research Centre (a national infrastructure for urban data services and analytics), and Honorary Senior Research Fellow at the School of Computing Science at the University of Glasgow.

Prior to that, he held the Data Systems Chair at the School of Computing Science at the University of Glasgow. Peter has also held professorial positions at Simon Fraser University (1991-1995), the Technical University of Crete (1995-2002), the University of Patras (2002-2013), and visiting professorships at the Max-Planck Institute for Informatics (in 2004-2005 and in 2012-2013). Peter received his Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Waterloo and was the Department of Computer Science and the Faculty of Mathematics nominee for the Gold Medal for outstanding achievements at the Doctoral level.

Peter has published extensively in top journals and conferences in the above areas, has served in the Technical Program Committees of more than 120 international conferences, and has been the PC Chair or Vice-chair in several prestigious conferences. Peter's papers have received the best paper award at the ACM SIGIR Conference (on Information Retrieval) in 2016 and at the ACM CIKM Conference (on Information and Knowledge Management) in 2006 and the best student paper award at IEEE Big Data 2018. Peter is a co-designer of several innovative systems (such as the MINERVA decentralized search engine and the eXO decentralized social networking system).
