I joined Facebook in 2013 and am currently leading Facebook’s machine learning platform team in New York. At Facebook, I have worked on multiple machine learning product teams including Newsfeed ranking, and Places data teams. Prior to joining Facebook, I completed my PhD in theoretical computer science at the University of Waterloo, Canada.
