Dr Nikos Ntarmos
- Senior Lecturer (School of Computing Science)
I am a Senior Lecturer at the School of Computing Science at the University of Glasgow, UK, where I am a member of the IDA and GLASS sections and the IDEAS research lab. I received my PhD and MSc in Computing Engineering & Informatics from the University of Patras, Greece, in 2008 and 2004 respectively, and my undergraduate diploma (5-year MEng equivalent) in Electronic & Computer Engineering from the Technical University of Crete, Greece, in 2002.
From 2013 till 2017 I was a Lord Kelvin Adam Smith Fellow at the School of Computing Science, University of Glasgow, UK. Prior to that, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Patras, Greece, and as an adjunct assistant professor at the University of Ioannina, Greece. I am a member of the IEEE, the ACM, and the Technical Chamber of Greece (TEE). I have also worked as a research engineer, software engineer, senior systems administrator, and routinely contribute to open-source projects.

My research interests lie in the areas of distributed computing and large-scale data management systems. My current research work focuses on issues pertaining to distributed (Big) data management, with a special interest in storage, indexing and query processing in distributed NoSQL data stores, graph databases, geo-distributed data management infrastructures, and joint in-rest and streaming data processing.
Within the School of Computing Science, I am a member of the Information, Data and Analysis (IDA) Section, the Glasgow Systems Section (GLASS) and the Information, Data, Events, Analytics at Scale (IDEAS) research lab.
