I am a computer scientist by training, with a cross disciplinary background in Human Computer Interaction, Natural Language Processing and Education. I am experienced in building product research teams that use qualitative and quantitative data to generate actionable insights and influence product direction. Thanks for visiting my homepage!
I am currently managing and building a research team on Messenger at Facebook that's focused on the ads and monetization piece of the product.
I managed the research team for Sales Cloud, which is the CRM product at Salesforce and includes Pardot, a B2B marketing product.
I was the founding member and later the manager for the data research team at Uber. The team focused on building analytics, visualization, real-time monitoring and machine learning products for Uber employees. In addition I kickstarted a research team that focused on self-driving cars.
I was a Collaboration and UX Researcher in the Connected Experience Lab at GE Research in San Ramon. I was part of a team that designed, built and evaluated systems for GE's businesses including (but not restricted to) energy, healthcare and transportation. During this time I also acted as the front-end engineering lead for SmartOutage app. The app is still used by thousands of field engineers to do job scheduling, document management and networking (via a newsfeed).
Apart from being a research leader, I also enjoy hiking, photography, reading and Xbox games.
Outside of work, most often I can be found hanging out with my wife Devanshi, my son Parth and my dog Milo.
My brother Ambuj Tewari is an Associate Professor in Statistics at University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
