Hi, I’m Joshua!

I’m the Data Director for Sri Kulkarni’s congressional campaign in TX-22. I recently graduated from Stanford University with a B.S. in computer systems (focus: systems and AI) and M.S. in statistics (focus: causal inference).

While I wasn’t researching new methods for estimating causal effects at Stanford, I oversaw the student leadership team for Camp Kesem at Stanford.

In my free time, I watch TV, read, play jazz piano, bake sourdough, and improvise. To me, improvisation is more than a fun hobby – it’s a way of life. My favorite improv maxims are “Say Yes,” “Follow the Fear,” and “Mistakes are Gifts.”
