Bio
I am currently trying to start my own business, Sarah Tyler Data Sciences. Most notabily, I run Datayze. I received my doctorate in 2013 from University of University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC.) My dissertation, Repetition and Diversification in Multi-Session Task Oriented Search, was supervised by professor Yi Zhang. While my primary focus was Personalized Search, I also explored how personalization can improve to Recommendation Systems, and Sponsored Search, as well as in the context of Social Networks. While at UCSC I discovered my love of big data and data science. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to work for Yahoo!, Microsoft Research (MSR) and Bing with some of the best mentors in the world. Not only did we have a few paper publications and patent applications, but some of the projects I worked on shipped into production. After recieving my doctorate in 2013, I had the pleasure of working at Google for a year and a half before deciding to pursue my own company. Before graduate school, I was employed at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) for four years in the area of Information Retrieval and Natural Language Processing: primarily in Entity Extraction, Clustering and Classification. I was a key contributor on several projects and held a center wide consulting position. At LLNL, I co-founded and lead the Text Research Reading Group, a group whose primary focus is to keep abreast with the latest research in language technologies and closely related fields and am a member of the Text Analysis Working Group.
