Rasmus Pagh I'm professor in the Algorithms Group, and head of the Theoretical Computer Science section at the IT University of Copenhagen, Denmark. I am part of the Copenhagen algorithms community. I received my PhD in 2002 from BRICS at the Department of Computer Science, Aarhus University, supervised by Peter Bro Miltersen. My scientific interests are within algorithms and data structures, with an emphasis on big data. I have worked extensively on basic questions in information retrieval and the role of randomness in computing, on problems with applications in databases and knowledge discovery, and on the exploitation of parallelism in modern computer architectures. I am currently running an ERC-funded project on Scalable Similarity Search. See my ORCID entry for more details. There is a short video in which I talk about my work. Outside of work, I have a wonderful family that I spend most of my time with (personal info).
