Jia Yu obtained his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Arizona State University (advisor: Mohamed Sarwat) in Summer 2020. Jia’s research focuses on database systems and geospatial data management. In particular, he worked on distributed data management systems, database indexing, and data visualization. He is the main contributor of several open-sourced research projects such as Apache Sedona (incubating), a cluster computing framework for processing big spatial data.
Here is a one-page summary of my research.
