I am currently a Senior Data Analyst for the NY Criminal Justice Agency where my principal proects are using machine learning to reduce Failure to Appear rates for NYC criminal cases and a statistical analysis of Manhattan’s Extended Pre Arraignment Screening Unit which works to guide people with mental illness out of the Criminal Justice system.

I have won fellowships from the CUNY Graduate Center, the University of Chicago and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaigne.
