Annie Franco

Research Scientist

I am a Research Scientist on Core Data Science, where I combine tools from social science, causal inference, and machine learning both to build products and algorithms, and to understand their impact on real-world outcomes. During my time at Facebook I have led cross-functional teams to study the connection between technology and society, with a focus on political communication, polarization, algorithmic fairness, and social cohesion.
