Wolfgang Lehner conducts are variety of different research projects with his team members ranging from designing data-warehouse infrastructures from a modeling perspective, supporting data-intensive applications and processes in large distributed information systems, adding novel database functionality to relational database engines to support data mining/forecast algorithms, investigate techniques of approximate query processing (e.g. sampling) to speed up execution times over very large data sets, and exploit the power of main-memory centric database architectures with emphasis on modern hardware capabilities. Apart from basic and mostly theoretic research questions, Wolfgang Lehner puts a strong emphasis on practical research work within joint industrial projects, on an international, national, and regional level. He has published multiple text books and more than 150 reviewed research papers in conference proceedings and international journals.
