My research interests are in mining and understanding user behavior and user experience in various information systems, such as search, social media, and social networks. My current main focus is in designing new methodologies and models to systematically evaluate user experience in various information systems.

Before coming to MSR, I was an applied researcher at the measurement team at Bing, Microsoft. My main focus there was in the domain of online metrics. Before joining Microsoft, I was a postdoctoral scholar at Stanford University from 2009 to 2011. I obtained my PhD in Computer Science and Engineering from the University of Michigan in 2009. My Ph.D. dissertation is about The Structure and Dynamics of Information Sharing Networks.
