Peter Straka

Research Scientist

I am a Research Scientist who currently works in applied survey statistics at Facebook. I am fascinated by the problems Core Data Science is working on, as there are connections to many fields such as machine learning and statistics, causal inference, algorithms, physics, and economics. Before joining Facebook, I was a research fellow at the School of Mathematics and Statistics at UNSW Sydney, working on probability theory and its applications in statistical physics.

Interests

Statistics, applied causal analysis, machine learning
