Civic Data

Data-oriented thinking about where and how people live.

About

My interest in various aspects of the urban experience — urban form, agglomeration economics, the housing and real estate market, pedestrian and transit connectivity — is motivated by the central question of “what makes cities work?” My philosophical bias is to try to address these questions empirically, and to make publicly available data more public.

Since finishing my PhD in physics at UC Berkeley in 2014, I have worked for Via Analytics developing a product to minimize bus bunching, along with a set of other transit IT services. I recently moved to Amsterdam, a fascinating urban case study and a wonderful place to live.
