Welcome to my blog
This is my first blog post using the iPython notebook. I am very excited about the things it can do. Here is what I want to cover:
- Who I am
- What the blog will cover
- Why I named it Measure of Justice
I am a PhD student in Criminal Justice. I try to use social networks and data mining to help people make rational decisions about public safety. I care passionately about people that the world writes off. It is no shock. There have been many times when I have been written off.
Math, Computing, Causality, Networks, Security and Ethics
Early in my graduate career, I was struck that we spend a great deal of effort policing minority communities for drug use which has little effect on the non-involved but spend way less effort protecting the banking system from hackers. I also thought that there was a lot to learn about managing threats from inside by looking at both intrusion detection and counter- intelligence. Not surprisingly, I believe in second chances. Who gets those chances and when they come are areas of great interest.
