Research Scientist

I am a research scientist in the Computational Social Science group at Facebook, working to understand the impact of social media on politics, security, civic engagement, and (mis)information. Prior to Facebook, I worked as a data scientist at Uber to deliver insight of the rideshare market for marketing, finance, and other strategic business decisions. I got my PhD in climate science at UC Berkeley, and believe Facebook will play a significant role in climate change mitigation.
