Senior ML Engineering Manager @ Spotify Home Personalization

I am a Senior ML Engineering Manager in the Home Personalization team at Spotify. My team’s focus is on combining cutting-edge advances in ML, causal inference and reinforcement learning with scalable engineering to deliver Spotify Home recommendations that optimize for the long-term satisfaction of the 380+ million Spotify users. Before joining Spotify, I was at Netflix, building out the causal recommenders research area and subsequently starting and leading the adaptive experimentation team. Prior to that, I did a PhD on reinforcement learning at Stanford and worked at Google.
