I am a Research Scientist on Meta's Core Data Science team. My research applies causal inference and machine learning methods to solve problems in computational social science, with a particular interest in applying methods for observational causal inference. Prior to joining Meta, I was Lead Data Scientist at Thresher and also Assistant Professor of Computational Science at Minerva Schools at KGI. I received my masters in statistics and Ph.D. in political science from Harvard University.
