Jake M. Parelman

Hello. I'm Jake. I'm a computational social scientist and coffee addict. Between coffees, I'm a doctoral candidate at the Annenberg School for Communication (University of Pennsylvania), where I study political psychology with a focus on partisan polarization.

I'm also a freelance data-scientist and data-activist. There is more data available today than ever before, including data concerning local and global issues facing our communities. I believe that data-scientists are uniquely positioned to speak truth to the injustices that might hide in the numbers, and are needed in the ongoing fights to correct them. In my own community, I contribute to local efforts to bring about prison and police reform. To other data-scientists, I urge you to also ask, "how can I help?"
