Tore Risch, Professor

Hello, my name is Tore Risch. I am professor in Database Technology in the Department of Information Technology at Uppsala University, Sweden. I am Chair for the doctoral study subject area on Computer Science with specialization in Database Technology, TNDAVE04. A Curriculum Statement can be found here.

My research interests are on developing methods for processing search over data in terms of i) semi-structured semantic web based representations, and ii) high volume parallel data streams for industrial and scientific applications. A challenge in both cases is to provide scalable search as the data volume increases and the queries become complicated. The approach is to develop novel dynamic query transformation techniques and distributed execution strategies. I lead the research group, UDBL, Uppsala DataBase Laboratory. Watch Google Tech Talk presenting our scalable compute intensive data stream analythics technology.

I am a founder of the start-up company Stream Analyze Sweden AB which develops technology for scalable on-line analyses of streamed data.

According to Google Scholar my citation count on March 31, 2016 was 33998 with Hirsch’s h-index impact factor 28 (computed with Publish or Perish). Google Scholar has been shown to present a much more complete picture of a CS academic's impact than the traditional ISI Journal Impact Factor.
