I am a Principal Scientist at Google (see Google Scholar for my publications). I'm lucky to lead an amazingly talented team that focuses on applying Machine Learning algorithms to different challenging problems in Ads at Google. Our team's mission is to amplify product impact in Ads through innovations in AI -- we partner with product teams to launch core Ads innovations with large impact, as well as actively publish novel research in leading ML/CV/NLP conferences.

My wife is currently a Principal Research Scientist in the Alexa team of Amazon Science. Before that, she was the Director of AI Research / Principal Scientist & Machine Learning Leader at Samsung Research America. She has also been a Principal Scientist at SRI International and Visiting Scientist at Google Research.

We are blessed with a 12-year old daughter who loves chess, piano, swimming, coding , robotics, and dreams of being an AI scientist when she grows up ... she is clearly inspired by Robert Heinlein.
