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 telecommunication company.
