I am currently the data scientist for the Misdemeanor Justice Project. The Misdemeanor Justice Project seeks to understand the criminal justice response to low-level offenses, from arrest to disposition. I am also an adjucnt lecturer in the department of Math and Computer Science at CUNY John Jay where during Spring 2017, I will teach Programming Languages for Computer Science Majors. I will also be teaching data mananagement and descriptive statistics to NYPD Captains in John Jay's new NYPD Executive MA Program in Criminal Justice. I am a PhD student in Criminal Justice at the CUNY Graduate Center. I have won fellowships from the CUNY Graduate Center, the University of Chicago and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaigne.
Advocacy and charitable work
Through Columbia University's Center for Justice I Python to detainees on Rikers Island. I also mentor for the College Initiative, a project which helps people returning from prison access higher education. I am a member of (and have given at least one preentation at) the meetup groups NYC-D3-JS, NYC Python and Emacsnyc.
I am interested in prisoner reentry and economic mobility broadly.
