Research Scientist - Core Data Science

I am a Research Scientist on the Core Data Science team at Meta. I primarily focus on developing new methods to protect civic discourse on Meta. Before joining Meta, I co-founded two tech startups while completing my Ph.D. in Political Science and Social Data Analytics from Penn State University. In my free time, I continue to teach workshops and courses on a wide variety of data science related topics, and the materials for many of these workshops are freely available on my website.
