I’ve been a computational social psychologist on the Data Science team at Facebook since early 2012, after earning a Ph.D. in Human-Computer Interaction at Carnegie Mellon and a B.A. in Computer Science at the University of Oregon. My research generally bridges computer science and social psychology, particularly focusing on how people’s lives are affected by their experiences online. I’ve won Best Paper awards at CHI and CSCW for work on tie strength, social capital following job loss, and social support. I’ve also done extensive work on context collapse and identity management to support the Privacy team at Facebook.
