Michael Häusler

Michael is Head of Engineering at ResearchGate, the professional network for researchers and scientists. He introduced Hadoop at ResearchGate in 2011 and led the transformation of all backend systems to a horizontally scalable architecture. In the process, ResearchGate built up a data warehouse to make all their scientific data available for in-depth analysis. Today, many user facing features are powered by batch jobs or stream processors and ResearchGate runs thousands of Hadoop jobs every day.
