  Curriculum Vitae


I'm a Ph.D. student in the Data and Information Systems laboratory at UIUC. I am currently visiting UC Berkeley, where I'm fortunate to be advised by Aditya Parameswaran. My research is broadly focused on improving user workflows for machine learning and other analytics tasks, particularly by bringing ideas from the database community to enforce rigor and structure in such workflows, but without compromising interactivity. I'm grateful to have had my graduate study funded by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship.
