I am interested in applied Machine Learning & Computer Vision. I currently work at Twitter as a Senior Machine Learning Engineer with the Account Integrity team. There I am focused on detecting account takeover attacks against its users. Before that I worked at Dropbox as the tech lead of the Platform Abuse & Threat Research team. At Dropbox I monitored & investigated Advanced Persistent Threat actors amongst its 600 Million+ user accounts.

Prior to Dropbox I spent several years as a grad student at Cornell University studying Computer & Information Science. I was a PhD candidate (dissertation pending) in Information Science at Cornell Tech advised by Prof. Ramin Zabih. During my PhD, I built Computational Healthcare to help medical researchers at Weill Cornell Medical College analyze large patient datasets, leading to several publications.
