Hi. I'm Leila Zia, a senior research scientist in the Wikimedia Foundation. My research interests lie in the realm of machine learning and optimization. I'm interested in designing systems that can help Wikimedia Movement identify and signal missing content across Wikimedia projects and languages as well as designing algorithms that can help us identify those who are most interested to contribute towards the missing content.
