Eirik Bakke


I am a software engineer, database researcher, spreadsheet aficionado and music nerd from Norway, now living in the US. I did my PhD project with David Karger at MIT CSAIL, on generalized user interfaces for database applications.

I built the SIEUFERD system at MIT. The project continues at Ultorg.
