Data is powerful. My work and research focuses on the
human-centered usage of data and technology. My passion is using data and
technology is in service of people, especially those in
traditionally under-served communities.
The effective use of data, especially open data, can help governments
make better, more equitable decisions, can improve the transparency of
those decisions to help build trust with the community and to provide
opportunities for innovation.
I'm involved in a variety of projects. Our use cases focus on equity,
reslience (especially climate change) and safety.
