I am a research scientist on the Core Data Science team at Facebook, and I am collaborating with the Novi Economics team. My research interests include financial markets, econometrics, and statistics. Prior to Facebook, I received a PhD in economics from Harvard University, with a dissertation on how the Federal Reserve influences foreign central banks and investors. I also received an AM in statistics and an AB in economics and computer science from Harvard University.
