Lunch selfie with my awesome Fall 2017 intern from Waterloo (Ellen Wang, second from the right) and okay-ish teammates 😀 Ellen is working on the Facebook TV app and our Android video player. She’s coming with a rich set of experience from 5 previous internships (2 at Amazon, 3 at various startups).
Thanks to the team for updating my FB Research profile! It’s here.
During the first weeks at Facebook, we get to work on a variety of projects across the company. I worked on Facebook virtual assistant M. Our progress has been reported by the press (The Verge, Recode, Wired, Fortune). I also worked on various things for Instagram.
Most recently, I’ve been working on creating new video experiences. We’ve rolled out the ability to stream videos from Facebook to your TV – through devices like Apple TV or Google Chromecast – so you have the option to enjoy your favorite videos on a bigger screen. I’ve been part of a 3-member squad responsible for shipping this on Android. You can read more in the press (Engadget, PCWorld).
