Prof. Dr.-Ing. Sebastian Schelter

Sebastian Schelter is a Full Professor at the Berlin Institute on the Foundations of Learning and Data (BIFOLD) and Technische Universität Berlin. His research is focused on the intersection of data management and machine learning with the goal to foster the responsible management of data and to democratise data science technologies.

The research of his group is accompanied by efficient and scalable open source implementations, many of which are applied in real world use cases, for example in the Amazon Web Services cloud and in large European e-commerce platforms.

In the past, he has been an assistant professor at the University of Amsterdam, a faculty fellow at New York University, a senior applied scientist at Amazon Research and a research intern at Twitter and IBM Almaden in California. His research contributions have been recognized with an ACM SIGMOD Systems Award, an ACM SIGMOD Best Demo Runner Up Award, and a Best Paper Runner Up Award from the Table Representation Learning workshop at NeurIPS.
