Additional Research Experience Statistical Consultant, The Pew Charitable Trusts, Washington D.C., July 2010 – September 2010 The work for the Pew Charitable Trusts involved drafting a memorandum that provided an overview of different methods of estimating mean length of stay. It examined the strengths and weaknesses of the most widely used approaches to assessing the average length of stay in prison and proposed the most appropriate method of measuring length of stay at the state level, by offense and category over time. The memo also included description of data needed to accomplish the tasks.

Statistical Consultant, The Sentencing Project, Washington D.C., May 2005 – August 2006 Responsible for developing a report that examined time served in prisons. Utilized several data sets from the Bureau of Justice Statistics to program modules and create graphs in SAS.
