Eugene Wu

Bio

Eugene Wu is broadly interested in technologies that help users play with their data. His goal is for users at all technical levels to effectively and quickly make sense of their information. He is interested in solutions that ultimately improve the interface between users and data, and uses techniques borrowed from fields such as data management, systems, crowd sourcing, visualization, and HCI. Eugene Wu recieved his Ph.D. from MIT, B.S. from Cal, and was a postdoc in the AMPLab. A profile, informal bio, obit.

Eugene Wu has received the VLDB 2018 10-year test of time award, best-of-conference citations at ICDE and VLDB, the SIGMOD 2016 best demo award, and the Google and Amazon faculty awards.
