Hello!

I am currently a Senior Research Analyst at the Research and Evaluation Center at John Jay College, where I work on projects examining, measuring and evaluating the impact of various innovations in justice policy and practice. Over the years, my college fellowships and academic career have shaped my research interests which lie at the intersection of justice policy reform and data analysis. Having recently graduated in 2020, I am not in school at the moment but am a forever learner.

On a less serious note, I enjoy trying out recipes and documenting my successes and failures on Flickr (though I am not into photography aspect of it). Feel free to get in touch or connect with me!
