"My degree prepared me for my position in too many ways to count. In my courses, I learned how to design thoughtful and robust research. I developed skills in coding and statistics to actually carry out analyses. And, I learned substantively about elections and political behavior, so I can offer the needed context to our clients. Because of my academic training at Stanford, I was able to jump straight into my career and perform at the top echelon among my peers."
"As a data scientist on Civis' political team, I developed strategic recommendations for clients in the 2016 election. My work has involved election forecasting, optimizing resource allocation and analyzing campaign messaging for the largest progressive campaign organizations."
