Congratulations to Ruituraj Singh
On October 28th 2021, Ruituraj Singh, PhD student at IRISA from 2018 to 2021, received the BDA conference* thesis prize for his work entitled "Data Centric Workflows for Crowdsourcing Application".
Rituraj Singh completed his PhD in the DRUID and SUMO teams, under the supervision of Zoltan Miklos and Loïc Hélouët. Rituraj Singh's thesis has developped techniques for the deployment of complex applications on top of
crowdsourcing platforms. The thesis focused on the theoretical properties of data-centric workflow models, but also on their full implementation. The thesis notably proposed and evaluated new aggregation techniques for data originating from multiple contributors is a crowd. The techniques developed are implemented in a contributive science project, the SPIPOLL initiative, whose objective is to identify populations of pollinating insects in France.
