I am a computational sociologist. I received an MA and PhD in sociology from Stanford University, where I am also pursuing an MS in computer science. I am interested in using digital data to decipher the basic mechanisms of human social interaction. My experience includes over four years working as a data scientist in Silicon Valley. I work on the Facebook Core Data Science team, where my contributions have ranged from developing large-scale business intelligence systems to improving the performance of ranking models. I get excited easily when left near very large social datasets.
