PhD 2011 UvA, "Transient and Variable Radio Sources in the LOFAR Sky. An Architecture for a Detection Framework"
Using the colmn store MonetDB for multi wavelength transient searches, using optical and radio telescopes. Researching improvements in detection algorithms inside the database engine, scale out to distributed databases.
How do we guarantee that the database design and queries still behave linearly when spread over multiple nodes in a cluster? Or when we go from low to high source densities.
