Shivkumar Shivaji



I am a software researcher, Analytics/ML/Hadoop enthusiast, and a chess master. I received my PhD in Computer Science from University of California Santa Cruz in March, 2013.

I have been in the software industry since the year 2000 working in both large firms and startups. My PhD was pursued part-time from 2006 thru 2013 (it was pursued full-time from 2004 to summer 2006). I like dabbling in random software projects in my spare time. Off late, I have a preference towards chess and map reduce software.
