Engineering Intern at LinkedIn (2011)

Worked on LinkedIn’s social graph backend, a high-concurrency Scala application. Addressed scalability problems related to highly-connected users by changing the way connections are stored in memory and on disk.

Engineering Intern at Yelp (2010)

Wrote a naive Bayes classifier for uncategorized businesses. The project made it to production, and the classifier outperformed humans from Mechanical Turk — see this article or our original paper.
