I am a Security Engineering Manager on the Integrity, Investigations, and Intelligence team in Washington, D.C. I support a distributed team of highly skilled engineers who work on systems and infrastructure that provide a range of capabilities for Security Investigations.
I joined the company in 2014 as a Threat Research Scientist working on providing a better understanding of the threat ecosystem targeting Facebook users. This understanding involved building and refining signals of compromise, as well as evaluating Facebook’s user remediation systems. I also worked on investigating threats targeting our platform and our users, in an effort to understand the underlying mechanics and economics of the illicit activities.
I hold a PhD in Engineering and Public Policy from Carnegie Mellon University. During my tenure at CMU I worked on empirical measurements and economic modeling of online crime, towards understanding and structuring effective countermeasures. The title of my PhD thesis is Structuring Disincentives for Online Criminals.
