Erkang (Eric) Zhu
I am a PhD student in Computer Science at the University of Toronto. I am a member of the Data Curation Lab and my supervisor is Renée J. Miller. In the lab, I am collaborating with Ken Pu and Fatemeh Nargesian on several projects.
In the summer of 2016, I was fortunate to collaborate with Surajit Chaudhuri and Yeye He of DMX Group at Microsoft Research in Redmond, WA. In 2014, I interned at the Dynamo DB team of Amazon Web Services in Seattle.
My research focuses on algorithms for data management (searching, integration, and analytic). I published a paper in VLDB 2016 on Internet-Scale Dataset Search, and the code is open source.
I also have an interest in randomized algorithms and their applications. You can find a few implementations I have been playing with in the datasketch project.
