I am a research manager on Messenger. I currently manage a team that’s focused on building and growing the business side of Messenger. Before joining Facebook, I spent some time at Salesforce managing the Sales Cloud research team. Before that I was at Uber building out a research team for their internal data products and also self-driving cars.
My background is in computer science (HCI and NLP), and I was at UC Berkeley for my PhD. During and before that I spent quite a few years as a mobile game developer building language learning games for underprivileged children.
