Profil von Stella Gatziu Grivas



Stella Gatziu Grivas received her PhD from the University of Zurich in the area of active databases under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Klaus Dittrich. Her work in the project SAMOS focused on an extensive event language and on a mechanism for complex event detection.

She also initiated the work in data warehousing with focus on the incremental refreshment of a data warehouse and workflow management.
