I write code and do research in traffic theory and urban economics. In December 2016 I received my PhD in Civil Engineering at UC Berkeley, where my advisor was Carlos Daganzo. My goal is to make models helpful to the design of pricing and regulation. In my free time I read, swing kettlebells and create data visualizations using d3.js and React. I'm from the suburbs of Birmingham, Alabama.
