I am a Data Scientist / Computational Social Scientist focused on leveraging technology and quantitative methodologies to develop more effective solutions to pressing social problems, such as human violence and poverty. My work has culminated into patents, impactful products, and scientific publications with hundreds of citations. Currently, I am a Senior Data Scientist on Uber's safety team, where I build innovations that aim to make Uber the safest mode of transportation in the world.
Patents, papers, and supplementary materials (e.g., data, protocols) from my research are available here.
