About

In September, I'll be moving to the Bay Area to work at the Freedom of the Press Foundation as a Ford-Mozilla Open Web Fellow.

I'm currently 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'm also the CTO of Lucy Parsons Labs and a technical mentor for the 2016 Data Science for Social Good Fellowship. My interests are data analysis methods, machine learning, privacy and security.

Previously I was a 2015 Data Science for Social Good Fellow and an astrophysicist at the Kavli Institute for Cosmological Physics.
