Work Experience

rasdaman GmbH

Senior Software Engineer

July 2013 - Present

Developed enterprise features for the rasdaman database engine, focused on hardware-enabled query acceleration, peta-scale large data, cloud deployment and standards compliance.


Coordinator of the PublicaMundi european project, representing the rasdaman team in the consortium. In the context of the project a open-data, open-source platform for distributing georefenced data through OGC Services was built. The platform is now actively used by the Greek Goverment to publish their data to public and private partners and explored as a possible platform for the European Union geodata portal.


Member of the Earthserver project, representing the rasdaman team in the consortium. In the context of the project, an inter-continental federation of institutions that publish geo-spatial data (European Center for Medium Weather Forecast, European Space Agency, National Computational Infrastructure etc) is built using OGC services on top of rasdaman. The federation gives researchers access to retrieve analyze and process large petabyte-scale data in large distributed computing environments.

Managing Partner

January 2012 - Present

Managing projects and clients, working in two areas:
- client-side development of rich interfaces for web applications and web platforms based on Symfony (PHP) and Play Framework (Scala)
- software development for the rasdaman project, an Array DBMS, in cooperation rasdaman GmbH. The project consisted in developing a new feature that allows the database manager to be used directly on raster files (e.g GeoTIFF)
- main developer for the raswct javascript toolkit for displaying raster data in browser - see more
