Hi, I'm Pooja.

I'm a machine learning engineer, researcher, and writer.

Machine Learning Engineering

Currently, I work on Natural Language Understanding (NLU) at Facebook Reality Labs. My primary interest is ML Systems; I build foundational tools for data programming, active learning, and weak supervision for NLP. I'm also intimately familiar with MLOps and the full product development lifecycle.

Previously, I graduated magna cum laude from the University of Washington in 2017, with a B.S. in Computer Engineering, where I had the pleasure of working on research in the NLP xlab and ICTD lab. One of the highlights of my time at UW was working on Respeak, which developed my intersecting interests in NLP, Systems, and HCI. In no small part to the wonderful mentorship I received, my research also received the Best Undergraduate Honors Thesis Award. I also tinkered as a machine learning and software engineering intern at Instagram, Google, and Microsoft.

The best way to reach me is via email.

Other Interests

I love long-distance runs and walks, reading, and writing.
