I am a data scientist at on the Core Data Science team at Facebook. My research interests broadly cover both structural dynamics of networks and dynamic processes over network structures. I have recently been fascinated by rumors and memes.

Prior to joining Facebook, I received my PhD in theoretical computer science from the École Normale Supérieure de Lyon, where I worked on formalizing the notion of social community, at the intersection between graph theory and sociology.
