Daisy ACM Fellow


Christian S. Jensen named ACM Fellow

Daisy Director Professor Christian S. Jensen has been named Fellow of the ACM for contributions to temporal and spatio-temporal 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 50 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 ACM Fellow Program : “The ACM Fellows Program was established by Council in 1993 to recognize and honor outstanding ACM members for their achievements in computer science and information technology and for their significant contributions to the mission of the ACM. The ACM Fellows serve as distinguished colleagues to whom the ACM and its members look for guidance and leadership as the world of information technology evolves.”
