Emanuel Zgraggen

Prior to founding Einblick in 2019, Emanuel was a postdoc in the database group at MIT and got his PhD in Computer Science from Brown University. During this time, he worked with Tim Kraska and Andy van Dam on various interactive tools for visual data exploration and analysis. Most of them either influenced or are direct predecessors of Einblick, such as Vizdom that won the VLDB best demo award in 2015.

In his previous, non-academic life, Emanuel worked as a Software Engineer and DBA for or at various financial companies in Zurich and tried his luck as a freelancer building in-studio touch screen installations for Swiss National TV (before Jeff Han and CNN made it cool) and developing a Spotify clone for the Swiss market that failed miserably.
