I am a research program manager on the Research Operations and Academic Relations team. I build strategic plans for our Core Data Science and UX research teams to drive value for both the academic community and Facebook researchers. I focus on driving engaging academic collaborations, partnerships, research initiatives and conference activities.

Prior to joining Facebook, I managed the Berkeley Initiative for Transparency in the Social Sciences (BITSS) at UC Berkeley, including its meta-research and global training programs. I also worked with Los Angeles County as a Policy Fellow focused on improving policies related to the commercial sexual exploitation of minors. I hold a master’s degree in Public Policy from UCLA and a bachelor’s degree in Global Studies from UCSB.
