About Me

While I'm currently a graduate student working on my MS in Economics and Computation at Duke University, I'm also a software engineer and data scientist with experience at companies both large and small. My main languages are Python and JavaScript, although I have some experience in Java, Ruby, and Stata. I'm also trying to add Haskell to that toolbelt. My main interests are in how we can apply the tools of data science to making better public policy, especially in the transit and finance. I'm currently looking for internships either remote or in the Raleigh-Durham area, so if you like what you see, feel free to get in touch!
