Edward G

- Research Program Mentor

PhD candidate at Stanford University


Computer Systems, Data Science, Machine Learning


I'm a Computer Science PhD at Stanford, interested in algorithms and tools for data science. Having studied math and then worked as a software engineer for a few years, I've been trying to do research in making complex data analysis more accessible. Outside of work I enjoy playing badminton and learning guitar.

Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Project 1

- What are the most effective ways to analyze and communicate data from time-based events streams for video games or sensors?

Project 2

- Can we automatically discover overlooked trends based on massive public data sources: i.e. medicare reimbursement records?

Project 3

- Can I speed up my excel spreadsheet (or task X) by running it on the cloud?

Coding skills

Python, Java, C++

Teaching experience

I've had a great time mentoring two undergrad research assistants at Stanford working on data systems projects.

"Edward G. is an incredible mentor. During my project, he enabled me to understand such a challenging subject very easily. Additionally, he has greatly helped me perfect my project and guided me through any mistakes I might have made. I've also received a very reasonable amount of homework/preparation which prepared me for every lesson. Lastly, he has responded to any concerns and questions that I've had very quickly. I have learned a lot from this project that will definitely assist me in the future. Thank you!"
