I am a quantitative researcher in Facebook’s Community Integrity team, which aims to protect people from negative experiences on our platform. My work focuses on measuring and understanding these negative experiences. Additionally, I also do research aimed at improving the back-end internal tools by using principles from cognitive psychology to improve decision-making processes.

Prior to joining Facebook, I received my PhD from The Ohio State University and worked as a postdoctoral scholar at Stanford University. My research centered on understanding the neural underpinnings of number cognition and mathematics.
