Dominic Coey

Economic Research Scientist

I am a research scientist on the Core Data Science team. Prior to Facebook, I worked at eBay Research Labs. My main interests are in causal inference, experimental design and advertising effectiveness. Some of my recent papers include work on imperfect treatment assignment from cookie-level randomization; experimentation in markets with test-control interference; and using sequential testing to shorten experiment duration. I received a PhD in economics from Stanford University.
