Search relevance is all about marrying the nuts and bolts of data engineering with the art of constructing a user experience. In recent years, Elizabeth has worked with a spectrum of data transformation needs from high-rate, high-precision time-series sensor data to terabyte-scale text and image retrieval systems. Her current passion is setting up the analytics, infrastructure, and processes needed to bring machine learning to the tasks of search relevance.
