About me

I am a developer deeply interested in using technology to solve the big issues our society faces today. My current focus is on the intersection between data science and social science, where the best of both can be used to save lives, implement more effective policy, and improve democratic institutions.

My skills range across disciplines. I have experience developing in Java, C, and R, and am familiar with JavaScript, C++, Stata, SQL and x86 assembly. I am fluent in English and Spanish. I have a deep understanding of the workings and psychology to run effective Scrum teams that embrace Agile methodologies. I have experience conducting quantitative research using panel surveys and creating models of human behavior. I've developed applications like Web Crawlers, built and expanded the components of an operating system, and found security vulnerabilities in web apps and computer programs.
