William Spoth

PhD student

I am a third year PhD student at the University at Buffalo. My primary area of research is Databases, specifically semi-structured data exploration, optimization, and manipulation. JSON datasets are often non-homogeneous compared to traditional RDBMS tables and pose a significant challenge to understand, process, query, and validate for both humans and computers alike. My research incorporates traditional database techniques for optimizations, machine learning to aid in human interpretability, and distributed systems for efficiency. I'm currently building a tool to achieve these goals called SchemaDrill.

I'm a life long Buffalo resident, cold resistant, a self-proclaimed food critic, and basketball enthusiast.
