Spatial Database Research and PhD Opportunities at Singapore Management University


Kyriakos Mouratidis,
Assistant Professor

Singapore Management University,
School of Information Systems


Prof. Kyriakos Mouratidis from the School of Information Systems (SIS) at Singapore Management University (SMU) will give a talk about his research on spatial databases and about PhD opportunities at SIS. The presentation will start with basic information about Singapore, SMU and SIS. Following that, Prof. Mouratidis will give an overview of his recent research projects on spatial databases. The latter part of the presentation will focus on the PhD programme at SIS, the full scholarship support to PhD students, and the key features that make it distinct from PhD studies elsewhere. A mention will be made to the Living Analytics Research Centre (a research centre founded in SMU in collaboration with Carnegie Mellon University, USA), the opportunities it offers to PhD students, and the option to conduct part of their thesis research at Carnegie Mellon University. The talk will continue with employment opportunities for PhD graduates, and conclude with questions from the audience.
