About Me

Solving problems, making big data seem small.

All views on my website are my own and do not represent the organizations I work with unless clearly stated.

I use statistics and computer programming to identify patterns and relationships in data. Currently, I am a data scientist and consultant focusing on leveraging data for the public and social sectors. I earned my Master’s in Public Policy & Data Analytics from Carnegie Mellon in 2019 and my Bachelor’s in Information Sciences & Technology from the Pennsylvania State University in 2013. Prior to returning to school in 2017, I worked as a Technology Consultant where I became fascinated with data science, predictive analytics, and machine learning.

Outside of work, you may find me reading Kaggle submissions, reading science fiction, riding my bicycle, or playing pick-up soccer. Feel free to reach out to me if you are interested in working on an interesting project or just to have a chat.
