Google Research

Craig Citro


I'm a software engineer working primarily on Google Colaboratory, and I generally spend my time building tools to make researchers' lives easier.

I'm a former number theorist (PhD UCLA 2009), where I studied p-adic L-functions and modular forms, especially computational aspects. Since coming to Google, I've worked primarily on tools for data science, including Google BigQuery, TensorFlow, and Colaboratory. But all that aside, my biggest claim to fame was being an extra on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
