Staff Software Engineer, Computational Linguist
San Francisco Bay Area
As a Staff Software Engineer at LinkedIn, I work on various natural language processing applications such as query understanding, sentiment analysis, and member /job data standardization. Before joining LinkedIn, I was a Staff Research Engineer at Samsung Research America, where among other projects, I worked on extracting topic-indicative phrases from a stream of closed caption news data in real-time and text-mining customer support chat-logs for common issues customers experience. Prior to Samsung Research, I worked as a Computational Linguist at Disney Interactive, where I led a team of linguists and annotators to develop a proprietary patented language-filtering system for ensuring safety and appropriateness of user-generated linguistic content in Disney’s online games for kids.
