Aaron Abbarno

User Experience Researcher

I joined Facebook to build transparency and accountability into content regulation and strengthen voice for billions of users around the world. Before tech, I supported democracy, human rights, and local governance programs as an international development practitioner. My strengths are in surveys and experimental design, simplifying complex ideas, and bringing research findings to life for decision makers. I have a PhD in political science and have designed and completed research projects in more than 20 countries.
