Spyros Braoudakis completed his
Ph.D. Thesis in the summer of 1994, under Prof. Azer Bestavros. His research work was on
Concurrency Control Protocols for Real-Time Databases. In his
thesis, Spyros investigated several issues related to Speculative
Concurrency Control, including a formal proof of
correctness, complexity analysis, and heuristics to make
speculation practical. Also, he was part of the real-time research team that
conducted extensive simulations of various real-time concurrency
control protocols---a study that confirmed the superiority of
speculative concurrency control. Spyros is now in Greece,
serving in its army. Thereafter he is expecting to work for a
