I am a data scientist and software engineer on the Data Science team. My background is in mathematics, but looking to do empirical research I ended up applying statistics and machine learning in molecular biology before joining Facebook. My work concerns researching statistically robust methods that contribute to improving analytics across the organization. I studied for a BA in mathematics at the Open University of Israel and for an MS in computer science at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
