Director of Research for Central Integrity

As the Director of Research for Central Integrity at Facebook, I lead a global research organization that protects the community and cares for it by building support experiences, AI detection systems to detect malicious content and human review systems for the thousands of community operations agents worldwide.

Previously, I led the Cloud and Xbox research teams at Microsoft. Before joining industry, I received a Ph.D. in Human Computer Interaction (USA) and B.S. in Computer Science (Pakistan).


As a human scientist, I'm all about insights.
