Joseph M. Hellerstein (born (1968-06-07)7 June 1968[1]) is professor of Computer Science at the University of California, Berkeley, where he works on database systems and computer networks. He co-founded Trifacta with Jeffrey Heer and Sean Kandel in 2012, which stemmed from their research project, Wrangler.[2]

Education[edit]

Hellerstein attended Harvard University from 1986-1990 and pursued his masters in Computer Science at University of California Berkeley from 1991-1992.

Ph.D Studies and Research[edit]

He received his PhD from the University of Wisconsin, Madison in 1995, for a thesis on query optimization supervised by Jeffrey Naughton and Michael Stonebraker. He has made seminal contributions to many areas of database systems, such as ad-hoc sensor networks,[3][4] adaptive query processing,[5] approximate query processing and online aggregation,[6] declarative networking, and data stream processing.[7]

Awards and recognition[edit]

His work has been recognized via awards including an Alfred P. Sloan Fellowship, MIT Technology Review's inaugural TR100 list and TR10 list,[8] Fortune 50 smartest in Tech,[9] and three ACM-SIGMOD "Test of Time" awards.[10] He is a Fellow of the Association for Computing Machinery (2009).[11] Key ideas from his research have been incorporated into commercial and open-source database software released by IBM, Oracle Corporation, and PostgreSQL. He has also held industrial posts including Director of Intel Research Labs, and Chief Scientist of Cohera Corporation.
