Curriculum Vitae


I'm a third-year Ph.D. student in the Data and Information Systems laboratory at UIUC, where I'm advised by Aditya Parameswaran. My research is broadly focused on improving interactivity of machine learning and other analytics tasks, facilitated via algorithms for more expressive queries, approximate query processing techniques, and novel system design. I'm very fortunate to have my graduate study funded by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship.
