I lead our Product-Policy Research initiatives focusing on ensuring our product-related policies are based on rigorous research and the best available evidence. Before coming to Facebook, I was a senior economist at RAND and have previously served in the US Government at the White House National Security Council, Department of Defense and Department of Energy. My government service and research covers a range of safety and security issues ranging from sexual and gender-based violence to terrorism to military readiness and weapons capabilities. At the outset of my career, I was an assistant professor at the London School of Economics and I have a PhD in economics from Princeton University.
