My name is Dr. Marko A. Rodriguez. I focus my time and energy in various areas of the emerging graph computing space. The graph is a structure that represents vertices (nodes, dots) and edges (links, lines). Over the past few years, the graph computing space has seen an increase in developers, vendors and users. The reason why people are excited about graphs in the context of data management and processing is because they are realizing that many problems can be represented as a graph and solved efficiently using graph traversal techniques. No longer are graphs relegated to mathematical inquiry. This previously underutilized, fundamental data structure is now applied to numerous engineering problems. As a graph systems consultant at Aurelius, I work with organizations to help them understand the graph space and apply its ecosystem of technologies to solving real-world problems.
