Advait Sarkar

I am a computer science PhD student at the University of Cambridge, as a member of the marvellous Graphics and Interaction Group ("Rainbow"). I am jointly supervised by Alan Blackwell, Mateja Jamnik, and Martin Spott.

My research interests are currently focused on the usability of analytics. The bigger aim is to improve the usability and accessibility of tools used to perform sophisticated analytics, which involves data management, statistics, and machine learning. Specifically, I am interested in the development of mixed-initiative software tools for data mining and visual data analytics. That's a fancy way of saying I'm making smart software that helps people analyse data, often visually.

Besides this, I am also interested in transport research, bibliometrics, and applied machine learning in general.
