Hi! I am an applied machine learning researcher and engineer working primarily in the areas of deep learning, sequence and graph modeling, representation learning, and data mining. I am currently a Research Scientist in the Core Data Science team at Facebook Research. Prior to this, I also interned at Facebook Research, Adobe Research, and Xerox PARC.

From 2015-2019, I was a PhD student at WPI in the Computer Science Department — where I had the privilege of working under the supervision of Prof. Xiangnan Kong. Here is a copy of my updated CV.
