Hi, I'm Shivam Raval, a graduate student in the Physics Department. My current interests are in various applications of Data Science and Machine Learning towards real world problems. I'm intereseted in making Interpreatble and Explainiable AI models and I recently became interested in Data Visualization.

I'm currently working with Martin Wattenberg, Fernanda Viégas and Finale Doshi-Velez on analyzing speech data to extract and visualize various oratory and prosodic features from it.

Before my venture into the domain of AI, I was an Experimental Physicist. Specifically, I've worked on building experimental laser and vacuum systems that would cool down atoms and molecules ultra-low temperatures to study their properties and exotic phenomena that can result due to them.
