I'm a Research Scientist at Snapchat Research.

After defending my PhD thesis working under the ingenious William W. Cohen, I worked at Microsoft (Bing and Live Labs), Inome and Qualcomm Research. In a previous life I also worked as a software engineer at Ericsson R&D. I'm interested in applied research interfacing Natural Language Processing, Machine Learning, Information Retrieval and Text & Data Mining. In particular, I have worked on text mining, learning specific ranking functions for web search, long web query retrieval, sampling techniques for large scale evaluation, information extraction, classification and user recommendation models for email (speech acts, email leaks, recipient recommendation, etc.), and a handful of other interesting topics.
