About Me

I am currently a researcher at Adobe research where my work focuses on the intersection between experimentation, causal inference & discovery, and machine learning with a particular focus on dependent data. Previously I was a research scientist in the Core Data Science group at Facebook. My work at Facebook focused on developing methods for advanced experimentation, specifically Bayesian optimization and contextual bandits. I earned a PhD from the College of Information and Computer Sciences of UMass Amherst, where I was advised by David Jensen. My research in grad school focused on methods for causal inference from observational relational data.
