Professor Christian S. Jensen has been elected Fellow of the IEEE for contributions to temporal, spatio-temporal, and mobile data management.
His research focuses on the management of data that are temporal, spatial, and spatiotemporal. The availability of increasing volumes of such data is brought about by several trends, including the following: increasingly ubiquitous wireless communications; the growing deployment of sensors, including location sensors such as GPS and Galileo; increased data storage capacities and communication bandwidths; and general improvement in the performance/price ratio. Within this area, his research covers conceptual and logical data modeling; data models and query languages; query processing and optimization frameworks; transaction support; and indexing and query processing.
Christian S. Jensen is among the most productive and highest cited computer scientists in Denmark. His current Google-Scholar-based h-index is 37 and he is ranked highly among computer scientists in Denmark at Microsofts Libra Academic Search, which ranks computer science researchers according to total numbers of citations.
The IEEE Fellow Program: The grade of Fellow recognizes unusual distinction in the profession and is conferred upon a person with an extraordinary record of accomplishments. The accomplishments that are being honored have contributed importantly to the advancement or application of engineering, science and technology, bringing the realization of significant value to society.
