Summer 2017–present: Software Engineer, Google Research, New York, NY.
Member of the Structured Data Group in Google Research, working on computational journalism. I use machine learning, natural language processing, and information retrieval to help computers understand news and build products that will make news more informative and engaging.
Worked on shopping ads and recognizing products in images.
Built a system that connects various computer vision tools and
incorporates semantic data to map objects found in images to
visually and semantically most similar product offers.
Worked on Google's click-through rate prediction system.
Designed and implemented algorithms for searching for regions of the feature space
where the click-through rate prediction models exhibit high bias.
Summer 2014: Research Scientist Intern, Amazon, Seattle, WA.
Worked on data center capacity forecasting for Amazon Web Services.
Created a new methodology that is based on machine learning and utilized for long-term capacity forecasting.
Per backtesting evaluations, the new method significantly reduced error compared to the incumbent AWS forecasting process.
