Director of Research, Integrity Ecosystems

I’m a Research Director on Meta's Central Integrity team, which aims to minimize harmful experiences for the people who use our products. My academic works have shed light on a human perspective of cybersecurity, investigating strategies to manipulate hacker decision-making through a game theoretic lens and to encourage everyday security behaviors in the face of online threat. At Meta, I support a team of researchers who focus on predicting and mitigating the online harms that stem from global and societal crises. Our team triangulates attitudinal and behavioral signals to identify spikes in harmful content across the platform, assesses the risks of global events to recommend where we should focus our time and efforts, and tests solutions to minimize those risks to our users.
