Rachel Behler

Research Scientist

I joined Facebook as a Research Scientist in 2017. My work leverages survey and behavioral data to understand user pain points and inform product strategy. I’ve had the opportunity to work on projects spanning across the company, including ads, messaging, well-being, misinformation, friending, and growth in emerging markets.

Prior to Facebook, I received my in PhD in Sociology from Cornell, where I studied the relationship people’s social networks, neighborhoods, and health behaviors. My work has been published in Social Science Research, Journal of Health and Social Behavior, and Network Science (among others).
