Alberto Lerner

Bio and Interests

I am a Senior Researcher at the University of Fribourg, Switzerland at the eXascale Infolab. Previously, I spent some time in research groups at IBM Research (both at T.J. Watson and Almaden), and in the industry, at Google and MongoDB – and some start-ups. I got my Ph.D. in 2003 at Ecole Normale Superieure de Telecomunications at Paris (now Paris Tech) having done the research work connected to my Thesis both at INRIA/Rocquencourt and at New York University, under Dennis Shasha.

My research interests revolve around non-conventional database systems. I mean non-conventional in at least three different contexts.
