UX Researcher

I am a qualitative researcher on the Well-being team at Facebook, where I focus on understanding the impact that social media has on subjective well-being. Before joining the Well-being team, I gained valuable experience and skills through the Facebook Research Associate Program.   Prior to research, I was a program manager in Community Operations at Facebook, where I focused on aggregating operational data for teams that focused on online safety and support for vulnerable populations. I worked in consulting for three years before joining Facebook and studied Industrial & Labor Relations at Cornell University.
