Hi, I'm Brandon.

I'm in the database group in the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science at the University of Washington. My research, in the domain of database management systems, focuses on designing and building systems that address the needs of new and emerging classes of applications. I am advised by Magdalena Balazinska and Alvin Cheung.

Video data is is being produced and consumed in staggering quantities, and come with unique and substantial data management challenges. With this in mind, my recent work has focused on video analytics and video data management, focusing especially on new and emerging domains (e.g., VR/AR, deep learning, and large-scale multi-camera networks). To improve the performance of video applications in these domains, I develop systems, techniques, and approaches that improve the storage, management, and analysis of video data. This includes leveraging state-of-the-art methods in video compression, signal processing, computer vision, and data storage, and exploring how we can best integrate these methods with modern data management techniques to improve performance and programmability.
