Brief Bio:I am currently on leave from Stevens Institute of Technology and working as a Data Scientist at Facebook. From 1-12 grade I went to Barrie School in Silver Spring, MD. From there I went to Carnegie Mellon and studied physics, until I went to University of Pittsburgh and earned my B.S. in psychology in 1999. I spent two years working as a research assistant at the Biostatistics Center on a multi-center clinical trial of therapy for BPH. I moved on to Indiana University and graduated in 2007 with a Ph.D. in Social Psychology and Cognitive Science. I worked as a Visiting Scientist at Yahoo! Research in the Human Social Dynamics group from 2007-2011. In the fall of 2011 I started as an assistant proessor at Stevens, and worked full time until July 2013 when I started at Facebook.
