Hamed Nilforoshan

I am a Computer Science PhD student at Stanford University, advised by Prof. Jure Leskovec. Previously, I was a Machine Learning Data Scientist at Airbnb. I received my Bachelors in Computer Science at Columbia University, where I was advised by Prof. Eugene Wu.

I am broadly interested in developing data science and machine learning methods to quantify, understand, and mitigate structural inequalities. I am grateful to be supported by the Knight-Hennessy and NSF Graduate Research Fellowships.
