Amey Porobo Dharwadker
I am a Staff Machine Learning Engineer at Facebook, leading the Video Recommendations Team, focusing on user personalization models. Prior to that, I also delivered significant improvements for Feed Ranking and Ads Ranking models at Facebook since 2015.
I graduated from Columbia University with MS in Electrical Engineering specializing in Computer Vision. I worked with Prof. Shih-Fu Chang on Video Action Recognition in the Wild.
Before that, I worked on computer vision based Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) algorithms at Analog Devices. I obtained my undergraduate degree from NIT Tiruchirappalli.
I am interested in research groups working on Recommender Systems, Information Retrieval and Deep Learning. I like to work on problems where optimization metrics are complex, and good user experience is hard to formalize.
