  • Google Cloud Dataprep

    Google Cloud Dataprep, born from a collaboration between Trifacta and Google, is an intelligent data service for visually exploring, cleaning, and preparing structured and unstructured data for analysis.

    At Trifacta, I worked as part of the team involved in rearchitechting Trifacta's data preparation product into a microservice based architecture fit for integration into the Google Cloud Platform.

    My contributions to this project included implementing and optimizing data transformation operations as data-parallel primitives on Dataflow, Google Cloud's distributed computing engine. I was also responsible for the integration of BigQuery - Google's serverless, highly scalable, low cost enterprise data warehouse - as a data source on Dataprep.

  • Robotics for High School Students

    As part of the Computer Science popularization team at my university, I developed a web-based IDE à la MIT Scratch for programming and simulating an Arduino-based, two-wheel robot.

    The application has been used to introduce programming and robotics concepts to over a thousand high-school students, and is still in use today. It also has a pretty slick user interface: https://goo.gl/BaXxbV.
