Biography

Ramez Elmasri is a Professor (since 1994) and Associate Chair (since 2011) of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) at the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA). He holds a BS degree from Alexandria University, as well as MS and PhD degrees in Computer Science from Stanford University. He has over 160 refereed research publications, and has supervised 18 PhD students and over 100 MS students. He is also lead co-author of the widely used textbook “Fundamentals of Database Systems”, co-authored with Professor Shamkant Navathe of the Georgia Institute of Technology, which is now in its seventh edition (published by Pearson). He has also co-authored the book "Operating Systems: A Spiral Approach" (McGraw-Hill, 2009) with Gil Carrick and David Levine. Elmasri is a recipient of the UTA College of Engineering Outstanding Teaching Award in 1999.

His research has covered many areas of database management and big data, including conceptual modeling and data integration, query languages and indexing techniques, temporal and spatio-temporal databases, bioinformatics databases, data collection from sensor networks, and mining/analysis of spatial and spatio-temporal data. His work along with his students on energy saving during data collection from sensor networks has resulted in 2 PhD and 2 MS theses. Elmasri has worked as a consultant to various companies, including Digital, Honeywell, Hewlett Packard, and Action Technologies, as well as consulting with law firms on patents. He was the Program Chair of the 1993 International Conference on Conceptual Modeling (ER conference) and program vice-chair of the 1994 IEEE International Conference on Data Engineering. He has served on the ER conference steering committee and has been on the program committees of many conferences. He has given several tutorials at the VLDB, ICDE, and ER conferences.
