About me

I am a Principal Researcher at Microsoft Research and a visiting scientist at the Technion, Israel. Prior to joining Microsoft, I was with Yahoo Research, the Machine Learning group at IBM Research Haifa Lab, and Rafael. I did my M.A. and Ph.D. at the Technion. The focus of my work is on using Internet data to improve health and medicine by applying tools from Machine Learning and Information Retrieval.

Research Topics

My current research projects are:

  • Learning health facts from user generated content (side effects of drugs, mental states of cancer patients)
  • Networked user engagement
