I'm currently a Ford-Mozilla Open Web Fellow at the the Freedom of the Press Foundation working on SecureDrop. I'm also a co-founder and member of the police accountability non-profit Lucy Parsons Labs.
Previously I was a postdoctoral scholar at the Center for Data Science and Public Policy at the Computation Institute and the Harris School for Public Policy at the University of Chicago. I was a technical mentor for the 2016 Data Science for Social Good Fellowship. Before that I was a 2015 Data Science for Social Good Fellow and an astrophysicist at the Kavli Institute for Cosmological Physics.
