Computational Social Scientist

My research at Facebook focuses on civic engagement, but I have also studied crowdsourcing, group dynamics, and social influence. My Ph.D. is from Indiana University in social psychology and cognitive science, and previously I worked as faculty at Stevens Institute and as a visiting scientist in the Human and Social Dynamics lab at Yahoo! Research.
