Amaç Herdağdelen

Data Scientist

I am a computer scientist on the Data Science team at Facebook. I apply data mining, network analysis, natural language processing and machine learning to better understand social patterns and people. I have a PhD in computational linguistics from the Cognitive and Brain Sciences Programme of University of Trento, where I worked on extracting commonsense knowledge and gender stereotypes from social media corpora. I completed my MS and BS in Boğaziçi University with a focus on complex systems research.
