I own the R package findviews, available on CRAN and Github.
I also contributed to MonetDB, a very fast open source columns store.
Teaching and Mentoring
I advised and tutored for prof. Eugene Wu's data exploration class, and I work with undergrads Haoci Zhang, Kevin Lin and Ian Huang.
Before I started my PhD, I had a technology role at JPMorgan (investment banking) for a year.
I wrote my Master's thesis in the database group of Uppsala University, in Sweden. I developed a Naive Bayes classifier for a DBMS, and used it on a stream of Twitter messages to detect emotions. You may find the text here.
I play lots of music, and I attend as many concerts as I can. Between January and September 2015, I toured with a music band. We achieved a lot, I will happily share tour stories upon request.
