I'm Zezhou Huang. You can call me Zachary.
I'm a PHD student at Columbia University advised by Professor Eugene Wu. My work centers on developing a semantic layer for large join graphs in cloud data warehouses. If you look at the image below, you'll see what join graph from a place like IMDB can look like - it's a bit messy, right? My job is to clean up that mess.
My previous projects built interactive dashboards, ML systems, and data discovery tools on top of join graphs. Now, I'm also looking into how to solve data problems with large language models (LLM) and speed up query processing with GPU acceleration.
The Google PHD Fellowship and Avanessian Fellowship provide generous funding for my research.
