Kyumars Sheykh Esmaili joined the Bell Labs Antwerp at the end of 2014.

Previously, Kyumars was a research engineer at Technicolor's R&I Lab in Paris, France, where he was part of a team that is building a large-scale, data-driven monitoring and troubleshooting system for home networks. Prior to that, he was a research fellow at Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore. At NTU, he worked on improving the reliability and storage efficiency of big data analytics frameworks (i.e., Apache Hadoop).

Kyumars obtained his PhD degree in computer science from ETH Zurich, Switzerland, in November 2011. His PhD thesis dealt with a range of conceptual challenges facing data stream processing in complex applications. Among his contributions were (a) establishing a schema for data streams and exploiting it for efficient processing, (b) defining lifecycle semantics for continuous queries, and (c) addressing the problem of provenance management on data streams.

Kyumars holds a master's and a bachelor's degree from Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran, and has had short-term affiliations with University of Kurdistan as lecturer and adjunct professor.
