Omar Vasnaik

Research Manager

I have been at Facebook since January 2015. I started out in the ads space, conducting research on the Audience Network and Mobile App Install Ads products. I then transitioned over to Marketplace where I now lead a team of researchers responsible for the core experience of the product. Prior to Facebook, I contributed to the development of productivity, developer tools, portal and mobile app experiences at Microsoft and CA. I have a master’s in computer science from Virginia Tech where I studied the effect of virtual environment displays on human cognition. I have publications in the fields of virtual reality and remote usability.
