Eric Smith

Research Engineer

I joined Facebook AI Research (FAIR) as a research engineer in the spring of 2018. Prior to FAIR, I was a machine learning engineer at Blue Apron, where I created and maintained the company forecast of the relative order volume of upcoming product offerings. I was a fellow of Insight Data Science in New York in the Summer 2015 cohort. I hold a doctorate in physics from Princeton University for my biophysics research in measuring protein and mRNA expression in the developing fruit fly embryo with high spatiotemporal resolution.
