Ecology, statistics, and programming enthusiast
I’m a data scientist doing research and development work at Civis Analytics in Chicago. I like bringing a software design mentality to data science problems, and turning one-time analyses into automated workflows. I finished my doctorate in Ecology and Evolution at the University of Chicago in 2017, where I studied complex ecological network structure.
Outside of the office, I play board games, study Japanese, read obsessively, and can sometimes be found upside-down on a trapeze bar.
When I was in grad school, I spent a summer at a programming retreat called the Recurse Center. It’s where I really learned to love thinking like a programmer, and it’s an amazing community of folks. Take a look!
