Alexander W. Lee


I am an incoming computer science PhD student at Brown University, where I will be advised by Ugur Cetintemel and supported in part by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. My research interests are in databases and machine learning systems.

I graduated from Amherst College with a Bachelor of Arts in computer science and mathematics. At Amherst, I explored scalable and statistically-sound data mining algorithms as an research assistant in the Data* Mammoths research and learning group led by Matteo Riondato.

Since graduating from Amherst, I have had a lovely experience working as a software engineer at Microsoft in Redmond, WA.

As for hobbies, I enjoy playing tennis, ice hockey, guitar, and cello!
