I am a research scientist and software engineer on the Computational Social Science Team in Core Data Science (CDS) & Central Social Impact (CSI) at Meta. My expertise is in adversarial social networks, which encompasses inauthentic coordination, misinformation, and other high-risk integrity scenarios. At Meta, I design methods, tooling, and research geared toward detecting, understanding, and mitigating harmful networks on the family of apps.

In addition to the above, I am Research Faculty in the Interdisciplinary Laboratory of Computational Social Science (iLCSS) at the University of Maryland, College Park, and I am affiliated with the Massive Data Institute at Georgetown University.

In my previous life, I was the Associate Director of the Master of Science in Data Science for Public Policy program (DSPP), and an Assistant Teaching Professor in the McCourt School of Public Policy at Georgetown University. I taught courses on data science and causal inference. (See Teaching for more details).
