Stavros Harizopoulos

Software Engineer

I am part of Facebook’s Data Infrastructure where I lead various initiatives around interactive analytics and monitoring. Before Facebook, I was a Principal Engineer at AWS Redshift, and before that I co-founded Amiato, a managed ETL service, which was acquired by Amazon.

My research interests are in column-store databases, in-memory databases, and energy-efficient computing. I hold a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon, I did my post-doctoral research at MIT, and I am a Y Combinator alumnus.
