Project: Columnar Data Analysis Tools for HEP Analyses

High Energy Physics analyses are typically large in scale and highly parallelizable yet current tools are insufficient and not widely adopted in the community. To that end, I am working with the Coffea team as Fermilab to help define an API boundary between the macroscopic taskgraphs created by the Luigi Analysis Workflow (LAW) and dask-awkward python libraries. These tools seek to help analysts organize and understand the structure of their analyses and then execute them in a well defined workflow which can be easily reproduced later.
