Short Bio. I got my Ph.D. in 4 years at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). My research accelerates and automates unsupervised ML: (1) how to speed up large-scale learning tasks with ML systems and (2) how to automate unsupervised ML model selection and hyperparameter optimization. I build AI/ML applications in finance, healthcare, and security.
Ph.D. time. At CMU, I worked with Prof. Leman Akoglu, Prof. Zhihao Jia, and Prof. George H. Chen. I was a member of CMU automated learning systems group (Catalyst). I collaborated with Prof. Jure Leskovec at Stanford and Prof. Philip S. Yu at UIC.
