Building Scalable Spatially-Aware Systems

Mohamed Mokbel’s research interests lie at the intersection of system building and spatial computing. His work addresses challenges raised by the ubiquity and unique characteristics of spatial data, produced from a myriad of devices ranging from smartphones to satellites. His group has enriched the computing system infrastructure by building spatially-aware widely used systems, tools, and techniques for spatial big data management and analysis, machine learning, location privacy, recommender systems, and social networks.
