Data Scientist

I am a data scientist on the Infrastructure Strategy team at Facebook. My work involves scaling Facebook’s infrastructure and understanding the factors that drive its growth using time series forecasting and causal inference.   I received a PhD from the University of Tennessee in Chemical Engineering. My research focused on developing better lithium-ion battery anodes via computational modeling and understanding atomic environments through the use of various machine learning techniques.
