I am a computer scientist on the Data Science team at Facebook. I am interested in probabilistic graphical models, distributed inference, and machine learning. In my present work, I study people’s online identity, building models to predict the information people fill out on their profiles, the languages they speak, and their use of Facebook overall. I received my PhD from the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University and a Master’s from MIT.
