Data Science for Social Good

dssg_logoI am spending the summer of 2014 in Chicago as a fellow at the Eric and Wendy Schmidt Data Science for Social Good summer fellowship.

My team is working with the City of Memphis to better understand the dynamics of vacant and abandoned property in the city, and to evaluate the potential impacts of rehabilitation. We have been working on a classifier to identify likely abandoned houses using tax assessor data, as well as an evaluative model that estimates the impacts of one successful rehabilitation on the tax assessed values of neighboring properties.
