Tim co-authored over 150 research papers, gets regularly invited to give keynotes at large conferences, served as an expert witness on high profile patent cases, and did several large industry projects with leading Internet companies from McKinsey to Oracle. Tim is a 2017 Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellow in computer science and received several awards including the VLDB Early Career Research Contribution Award, the VMware Systems Research Award, the university-wide Early Career Research Achievement Award at Brown University, an NSF CAREER Award, as well as several best paper and demo awards at VLDB and ICDE. When he is not working, Tim used to be a pretty bad ski instructor and while his PhD students still like to work with him, they wouldn’t take ski lessons from him (ask him about it).
