Carl Shan home my books quotes

My name is Carl. I was a 2014 Fellow at the University of Chicago's Data Science for Social Good program, working under Rayid Ghani at the Center for Data Science and Public Policy. There, I developed my statistics & computer science skills so that I can contribute to societal issues around poverty, health and education.

You can read the first in a series of posts chronicling my experiences as a DSSG Fellow here. You can also subscribe to get new writings here!

I'm also the creator of the Self-Guided Masters in Education, a curriculum that I designed for me to learn more about the field of education in the United States. You can learn more about the Masters programs' goals, curricula and "Capstone projects" on the website: www.understanding.education (yup, you read that domain right).

I graduated with a honors degree in Statistics from UC Berkeley in 2013, where I also took courses in computer science, philosophy and also a number of graduate education courses.
