Technical Program Manager

I am a technical program manager for the Applied Machine Learning platform team. Our team builds the Machine Learning platform used across Facebook.

Before Facebook, I worked in Microsoft building and shipping several products including a new Click Prediction system for Bing Ads, several enhancements to the Speller and Query Alterations engine in Bing and most recently an interactive machine learning platform for non-experts at Microsoft Research.

I have a PhD in computer science from the AI Lab at MIT.
