My background is in Math and Computer Science. Upon entering grad school, I realized that computers themselves are really not that interesting. What is interesting, however, is the way in which we use and interact with these machines, especially in the humanitarian sector.
I am working at the intersection of Computer Science and Humanitarian work. Currently, I aim to reimagine our big data analysis practices to better account for the socio-behavioral features that drive the data production itself in order to support a data interpretation that better describes human behavior.
I recieved my BA in both Mathematics and Computer Science from Carroll College in 2012. Carroll is a small liberal arts school located in Helena, Montana. Before that, I lived in Steamboat Springs, Colorado and attended the Steamboat Mountain School (Formerly the Lowell Whiteman School). I was a student of the Global Immersion Studies program and had the fortunate opportunity to travel abroad each year.
Some Non-Educational Things
I am passionate about sustainable development. To this end, three close friends and I started a property management and construction company in Helena, Montana.
I grew up on skiing, mountain biking, and climbing. I have been extraordinarily fortunate to live in places with access to the great outdoors.
I have traveled to all 50 states in the USA, 9 Canadain provinces, and 20+ Countries.
