Data Scientist - Core Data Science

I’m a Research Scientist on the Data Science team at Meta. I received a PhD in physics from University of Michigan and a BA in mathematics and physics from Kenyon College. My current research involves building causal models of user behavior, applying distributed optimization to improve infrastructure systems, and developing experimentation methods for networked environments.
