Data science, ecology, and programming enthusiast
I’m a Lead Data Scientist on the Surveys team at Civis Analytics in Chicago. I set methodological priorities for the team, including topics like survey weighting, quota setting, and message testing. I bring a software design mentality to data science problems, and focus on converting ad-hoc analyses into production code. I received 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!
