Senior Researcher

Department of Computer Science and Technology


Dr Eiko Yoneki ( is a senior researcher leading a group on ‘Data Centric Systems’ in the Systems Research Group of the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory. She has received her PhD in Computer Science from the University of Cambridge. Prior to academia, she worked for IBM in US, Japan, Italy and UK, where she received the highest Technical Award.


Her research interests span distributed systems, networking and databases, including large-scale graph processing. Her current research focusses on auto-tuning of data processing/analytics framework to deal with complex parameter space using machine learning approaches for efficient parallel processing on scheduling and load balancing. She also works on several projects with African and South American countries, including ‘digital epidemiology’, understanding of human interactions in rural societies by applying wireless/sensing technology, and advanced modelling of infectious disease spread. She also works on supporting farmers by early detection of crop bugs or diseases by applying sensing and image analysis with machine learning.
