I am a research scientist working on conversational AI at Facebook. My current research interests are privacy-preserving machine learning/AI, and NLP.

I obtained my PhD in Computer Science from the Pennsylvania State University, University Park. My PhD research focused on large-scale optimization for machine learning, machine learning on streaming and temporal data with applications to smart transportation. During my PhD, I also worked at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab on various projects in the intersection of machine learning and smart transportation.

Interests
