Skills & Expertise

Statistical methods and analysis: I am fluent in a variety of statistical and demographic techniques (e.g., data reduction, regression based models, quasi-experimental design), as well as approaches for handling complex survey design and missing data. I am proficient in Stata and have some familiarity with SPSS, SAS, and R.

Applied research and evaluation: My quantitative skills are readily translatable to an applied research and evaluation context. I also have prior experience in performance management and outcome evaluation in the homelessness services sector and obtained a strong grounding in applied research methods (e.g., randomized-controlled trials) while completing my MPA (Princeton University).

Project leadership and management: I am skilled in all stages of the quantitative social science research process, from formulating research question and study design to merging, cleaning, and coding data to conducting analyses and sensitivity checks. Highly detail-oriented, I have a proven ability to meet deadlines and to work collaboratively as well as individually.

Criminal justice policy analysis: Thoroughly acquainted with both the academic and applied literature on crime and criminal justice systems, I have a particular knowledge of policing and law enforcement policy. I am further experienced with conducting and synthesizing literature reviews and “promising practices” research.

Cold-brew coffee: I am dedicated to maintaining my iced coffee routine throughout Wisconsin’s winters of sub-zero wind chill. My current technique uses the Mizudashi cold brew method.
