I am starting something to bring power of Computer Vision & ML to everyone!

I have worked at Twitter as a Senior ML engineer with the Account Integrity team. Before Twitter I was the tech lead of the platform abuse & threat research team at Dropbox. There I built ML powered systems to detect wide range of malicious activity conducted on Dropbox platform, such as account takeover attacks, malware delivery / command & control / data exfiltration. I also investigated multiple state-sponsored APTs amongst 600 Million+ Dropbox accounts. For these investigations I served as a point of contact and communicated with peer tech companies / incident responders around the world.

I studied Computer & Information Science at Cornell University. I am a PhD candidate (dissertation pending) in Information Science at Cornell Tech advised by Prof. Ramin Zabih. During PhD I built Computational Healthcare to help medical researchers analyze large datasets.
