Portrait of Wangda Zhang

Wangda Zhang


Greetings! I am a member of the Microsoft Research NYC lab, where I build scalable reinforcement learning and data science platforms. My interests span across machine learning, data management, and database systems, and I am excited about leveraging cutting-edge AI technologies to enhance data-intensive systems.

My work at Microsoft has been integrated into several products and services. My research has been published in top-tier conferences such as SIGMOD, VLDB, and WWW, as well as reputable journals including TODS and TKDE. I have also served on the program committees for leading venues like KDD and ICDE.

Previously I received my PhD in Computer Science at Columbia University, focusing primarily on database query processing. During my studies, I also completed internships at Google and Oracle Labs.
