About

Denis Shestakov is a postdoctoral researcher in the Web Services Group at the Department of Media Technology, Aalto University, Finland. He spent one year as a visiting researcher at the INRIA Rennes, France. Denis obtained his PhD in Computer Science (2008) at University of Turku, Finland in 2008. In his doctoral work, Denis addressed the limitations of web crawlers, specifically the poor coverage of information available in online databases (a.k.a. the deep Web). His current research interests lie in the area of distributed algorithms for big data processing, with particular applications in web crawling and large-scale multimedia retrieval. Besides research work, he teaches several postgraduate courses on cloud computing, distributed data management and web application development.
