I am currently a Senior at Davidson College with a Sociology major and class concentration of data science. Most of my previous work includes qualitative work, but I also value what quantitative data has to offer. I think they can both come together and offer a perspective of humanity and community. Check out my current and past work to get a better connection on my passions of education and racial equity.
Sociology and Technology
Within a sociological perspective, I focus on social issues within urban spaces of the United States inhibited by systemic pressures. Thoroughly understanding people’s social contexts positively impacts the communities they’re a part of. I believe the combination of qualitative data and quantitative data, through means such as technology, has the ability to enhance the quality of living for marginalized communities while respecting the desires of people within the groups.
To personally learn more about the connection that the social world has to technology, I participated in a Davidson College program in Silicon Valley in partnership with Adjacent Academies to develop code and utilize technology in an efficient way. Check out my past and previous work to see these two worlds of sociology and technology collide!
