Engineering Manager

I am an Engineering Manager in Language Technologies Group, helping with development of machine translation and crowdsourced translation products at Facebook.

I received my MS and PhD degrees in Computer Science from University of Maryland, College Park in 2003 and 2005, respectively. Before I joined Facebook in 2013, I was a postdoc at the University of Maryland between 2005 and 2007, and a research scientist at SRI International between 2007 and 2013, and I have worked on various natural language processing problems, including machine translation, conversational understanding and virtual personal assistants.
