I am a mathematically inclined software engineer interested in gleaning insights from data, and a member of the Data Science team at Facebook. I study different questions about the market as observed using both Facebook’s and externally available datasets. Challenges that arise there often involve balancing several perspectives to reach a more accurate understanding of the truth, and sometimes this research sparks interesting problems across several fields in computational statistics. I hold an M.Sc in Math from NYU and B.Sc in Math from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel.
Applied statistics, machine learning and recommender systems
