I adore what I do and am immeasurably grateful to those who have guided and given me so much throughout the years. I have been been well advised by Chris Bail, Evan Mayo-Wilson, and Jini Roby--as well as former colleagues at the NSF. Each of these individuals has uniquely contributed to my skills and writing style, as have Steve Vaisey and Jim Moody, who I now work with at Duke. I look forward to many more fruitful relationships going forward. This June, I'm helping with the Summer Institute in Computational Social Science at Princeton... join us!
I am an avid and aspiring coder, as well as a data geek. I've moved over 23 times, but I've loved (almost) every place that I've been. I come from a family of 10 kids and seven divorces. I'm pigeon-toed, exhausted by crowds, fascinated by culture and health, and frustrated by the perpetuation of gender inequality worldwide. I love to be outdoors--active and gardening. I've re(started) my rock collection, and I'm learning to drum... very slowly.
Here is my setup:
Google Cloud Platform to store and analyze even more
Trello to project manage
Zotero to cite
Headspace to chill
Pocket to read
Art is an important part of my life. Mostly experiencing it, but sometimes also creating. Below are a few of my photos. Connect with me on Instagram(@taywhitten)!
