Prof. Dr. Tilmann Rabl


I am a PhD student working at the Data Engineering Systems team at the HPI.

I received my Bachelor's and Master's degrees at the Humboldt-University of Berlin in 2017 and 2020, respectively.

As member of the Collaborative Reserch Center FONDA I am working on subproject Distributed Run-Time Monitoring and Control of Data Analysis Workflows (DAW). The goal of this subproject is to effectively monitor DAW executions and enable runtime control that reacts to the detection and anticipation of abnormal workflow behavior. For more information about FONDA and the subproject see our FONDA overview page or the official FONDA website.

Besides that my research is all about investigating and optitmizing distributed stream processing solutions. Currently I am working on efficient aggregation of data streams.
