I am currently a PhD student in Computer Science at the University of Notre Dame. My research interests include data/network science and machine learning. I formerly worked in Campus Ministry at Saginaw Valley State University with a group called Standing in the Gap, and have an M.A. in Theological Studies from Bethany Theological Seminary. In my free time, I love to be outdoors, write music, play video games, and read. I also like pineapple, sloths, the color purple, and have a cool scar on my right pinky toe. My favorite Haitian food is “patat” – a crazy delicious white sweet potato. I’d better stop there before things get too crazy.
I’m incredibly excited that 3P’s focus is on community education. Folks in the western world often have a savior complex and think that we need to solve everyone’s problems. I think this is both dangerous and untrue. But we have resources that communities in Haiti do not. I’m looking forward to 3p’s work to give of those resources as well as receiving other resources we may lack, such as finding deep value in relationships.
