Research Engineer

I joined Facebook AI Research as a research engineer in August of 2017. Prior to Facebook, I studied computer science at Cornell University, where I obtained both a Master of Engineering (M.Eng) degree and a BA degree.


I am currently working in dialogue research, with the goal of making more engaging and powerful conversational agents.
