Lab Director, IBM Research Ireland


Lisa Amini is a Distinguished Engineer and the first Director of IBM Research Ireland, including the Smarter Cities Technology Center in Dublin, Ireland.  Researchers at the Smarter Cities Technology Centre focus on advancing science and technology for intelligent urban and environmental systems, with a current focus on creating analytics, optimizations, and systems for sustainable energy, constrained resources (e.g., municipal water management), transportation, and the underlying city fabric that assimilates and shares data and models for these domains. Previously, Lisa was Senior Manager of the Exploratory Stream Processing Research Group at the IBM TJ Watson Research Center, and was the founding Chief Architect for IBM's InfoSphere Streams product. The Streams product is the result of a Research technology, System S, for which Lisa was also architectural lead from inception.  Streams is a software platform for continuous, high throughput, and low latency mining of intelligence from massive amounts of sensor and other machine generated data. She also led her team in formative Smarter Planet/Cities pilots analyzing real-time data for cyber security, manufacturing, telecom, market data analysis, radio astronomy, environmental (water) monitoring, and transportation. She has served on program committees, hosted panels, and presented keynotes and papers in numerous IEEE, ACM and other conferences and workshops. Lisa has worked at IBM the areas of stream processing systems and algorithms, distributed and high performance systems, content distribution, multimedia, and networking for over 20 years. She received her PhD degree in Computer Science from Columbia University.
