Shreya Shankar


I'm Shreya Shankar (she/her), a computer scientist living in San Francisco, California. I'm interested in building systems to operationalize machine learning (ML) workflows. My research focus is on end-to-end observability for ML systems, particularly in the context of heterogeneous stacks of tools.

Currently, I am doing my PhD in databases at UC Berkeley. Previously, I was the first ML engineer at Viaduct, did research at Google Brain, and software engineering at Facebook.

I graduated from Stanford University with a B.S. and an M.S. in computer science with concentrations in systems and artificial intelligence, respectively. At Stanford, I helped run a nonprofit called SHE++, an organization that helps to empower underrepresented minorities in technology. I also spent a lot of time as a section leader for CS198 and served as the head TA for CS106B.

To reach me, you can email I am also fairly active on Twitter, Github (for a PhD student), and Strava.
