Dr. Alessandra Mileo is currently a Lecturer in and a Senior Research Fellow at the INSIGHT Centre for Data Analytics, Dublin City University. She was previously a Senior Research Fellow, Adjunct Lecturer and Unit Leader at the INSIGHT Centre for Data Analytics, National University of Ireland Galway. She holds an MSC and a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Milan, Italy.
Before Joining the Digital Enterprise Research Institute (DERI, NUIG) in 2010, she was a Post-doctoral Researcher at the Nomadis Lab, Dept. of Informatics, Systems and Communication of the University of Milano-bicocca, conducting interdisciplinary research activities involving Ambient Intelligence and Knowledge-driven Sensor Fusion, which converged in the succesful EU project proposal EasyReach, AAL, 2009-2-17, as well as the establishment of a spin-off company in 2009, now called Contexta.
She continued her active contribution to successful EU proposals within DERI and later INSIGHT, acquiring a competitive EU project in the Smart Cities realm (CityPulse: Real-Time IoT Stream Processing and Large-scale Data Analytics for Smart City Applications) and she has been Principal Investigator for the primary industry collaboration within the Research Centre portfolio (Enabling the Internet of Everything: a Linked Data infrastructure for networking, managing and analyzing streaming information and follow up industry-funded projects).
Her current research focuses on scalable and interoperable ways of transforming web data streams into actionable knowledge. Research areas around this velocity aspect of Big Data involve Stream Reasoning, Web of Things/Internet of Things, query optimization, expressive and scalable stream reasoning languages and frameworks, hybrid methods for qualitative and quantitative reasoning, and access control for Linked Data. She is also active in collaborating with other research groups within the Center, applying research outcome in real world applications that have a very high economical and social potential impact. These include health monitoring, smart cities, sustainable IT and smart enterprise.
As part of her contribution to research and training, Dr. Mileo is currently module leader for Cloud Technologies and Enterprise Information Systems in DCU, and she has been co-PI for three successfull NSF grants sponsoring US students attending European Summer Schools in her area of expertise. She is heavily involved in supervision at undergrad and postgrad level, and she has successfully graduated 4PhD, 3MSc and 5MA students since 2012.
