I am a Social Science Analyst for the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). I have nearly a decade of experience working with spatial data and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). My work focuses on housing issues, typically spatial analysis questions regarding vacant housing and low-income rental assisted housing populations.
I conducted spatial analysis and wrote the article Proximity to homicide exposure in Washington, D.C., 2021. This article was referenced on TV by WUSA9, and online by The Washington Post and Greater Greater Washington.
Taught the following courses:
I collected, stored, and utilized data from a variety of internal and external data sources for reporting on DHCD programs and housing & market conditions in Maryland. I responded to ad-hoc information requests from the Maryland General Assembly and other requestors. I migrated data from various databases and spreadsheets into a central Access database system.
I worked on a variety of projects and delivered products to several different clients:
I held weekly office hours for students from Dr. Jeremy Tasch's Geography 101 course to come ask questions.
I organized paid volunteers to collect rental information for apartments in Baltimore City and Baltimore County, Maryland. Rental information was used for assessment for potential discrimination of protected groups.
