Harshal Chaudhari

I'm a PhD student with Department of Computer Science at Boston University. I'm co-advised by Prof. John Byers and Prof. Evimaria Terzi. I received my Bachelor's in Computer Science from BITS Pilani, India in 2013 and my Master's in Computer Science from Boston University in 2015. My research interests include algorithmic aspects of data mining alongwith electronic commerce, web and data analytics.

Some of my hobbies include graphite and color pencil portraiture as well as playing guitar. Feel free to look at some of my artworks on my blog. I'm an avid technology enthusiast and am always upto date with the events in the tech world, especially Android. I'm a passionate follower of Formula One, though on the ironic side, I couldn't drive a car if my life depended on it !
