Aurelius is a network of graph consultants and engineers from around the world. The core of the Aurelius team is presented below.
Dr. Marko A. Rodriguez has focused his academic and commercial career on graph theory, network science, and graph-system architecture and development. He is a TinkerPop cofounder and serves as the lead developer of the Gremlin graph traversal language. Marko received his Bachelors in Cognitive Science from UC San Diego, his Masters and Ph.D. in Computer Science from UC Santa Cruz and was a Director’s Fellow at the Center for Nonlinear Studies of the Los Alamos National Laboratory.
Dr. Matthias Broecheler is the lead developer of the distributed graph database Titan and has researched large scale graph database systems for more than 5 years. His award-winning research includes high performance index structures and query answering algorithms for graph structured data. In addition, he developed the Probabilistic Similarity Logic (PSL) machine learning framework to analyze and reason about multi-relational data. Matthias holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Maryland.
Stephen Mallette has been developing commercial software in various forms for about fifteen years. Most of his work in those years has been connected with start-up companies in the healthcare space. He is a TinkerPop contributor and lead developer of the Rexster graph server. He received his Bachelors of Science in Management Information System and Decision Sciences from George Mason University.
Daniel LaRocque is the manager of the Laboratory for Computational Cultural Dynamics (LCCD) at the University of Maryland’s Institute for Advanced Computer Studies (UMIACS). He holds a Bachelors of Science in Computer Engineering from the University of Maryland. Dan is a lead developer of the distributed graph database Titan and is an expert in distributed system deployment.
Dr. Vadas Gintautas has published high-impact journal articles on a variety of problems involving biological networks, information theory, computer vision, and nonlinear dynamics. He is a faculty member of Chatham University in Pittsburgh and a TinkerPop contributor. He holds a Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
Pavel Yaskevich has been developing open-source and commercial software in various forms for about ten years. He is an active contributor and project management committee member for Apache Cassandra. Moreover, Pavel contributes to both Gremlin and Blueprints of TinkerPop. He maintains an equivalent of a Bachelors of Computer Science from Belarusian State University in Informatics and Radio Electronics.
