Welcome! I'm Shreya Shankar. I am a machine learning (ML) engineer and computer scientist in the Bay Area. I am completing my PhD in data management systems with a human-centered focus. I study ML and artificial intelligence (AI) engineers and how to build better tools for ourselves. I am fortunate to be advised by Dr. Aditya Parameswaran at UC Berkeley. Go Bears! 🐻

Prior to my PhD, I was the first ML engineer at Viaduct, did research engineering at Google Brain, and software engineering at Facebook. Before all of that, I did my BS and MS in computer science at Stanford. Go Trees! 🌲

Research

My work focuses on addressing data management challenges in production ML pipelines with a human-centered approach. I'm working on the following:

Data Management Systems
Human-Computer Interaction

If you are interested in working on any of these projects or collaborating, please contact me via email. In your email, please include which project(s) you are interested in working on, or any of my papers that you found interesting. I am open to undergrads who have taken a databases course and/or a graduate level machine learning course. If you go to UC Berkeley, please mention that in your email. If you have experience working as an ML engineer, data engineer, or data scientist in industry (even as an intern), please mention that as well. I apologize if I am unable to respond to your email in a timely manner.
