A Few Accomplishments
My work at Quantcast involves applying inference techniques to large volumes of data that power Quantcast’s measurement products. I have worked on performing demographic, unique visitor and interest modeling as lead scientist on the Publisher Engineering Team at Quantcast.
My doctoral research focused on analyzing dynamics in online social networks. I worked on the ADAMS project. In particular, I worked on modeling and predicting departure events in social networks and detecting social bias on online consumer review websites. I have previously also worked on large-scale time-series and sentiment analysis for news sources as member of the Lydia project.
My research and work has been covered by various media sources.
I designed the indexing scheme that is currently used to rank the results. I also implemented the backend pipeline that powers these products.
These segments help capture the political affiliation and degree of political engagement for a web property's US audience. I implemented and supported the pipeline that produced these segments in a very short period of time (1 month). This allowed Quantcast to be the first free measure tool to provide these insights for all quantified web properties in the US. The product was released (in Beta) in September, 2014 to align with the US Midterm Election Cycle.
