Zhiyuan Jerry Lin

Research Scientist - Core Data Science

I am a Research Scientist at Facebook on the Core Data Science team. My research interests include algorithm-assisted human decision making, computational social science, data science, applied Bayesian statistics and machine learning. I leverage quantitative methods and computational tools to help people understand large datasets and facilitate better human decision making. I received my Ph.D. in computer science from Stanford University and my B.S. in computer science with a minor in probability and statistics from Georgia Institute of Technology.
