I’ve been a member of the Data Science team at Facebook since 2012, in which time I have studied how, when, and why information spreads on Facebook. I’m interested in building quantitative stories for how people use various Facebook products, enabling us to sculpt those products to allow people to connect to others in more effective and efficient ways. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from UCLA, where I did research in artificial intelligence and heuristic search algorithms.
