Join us on Monday, November 20 @ 6pm EST for an informative conversation with Josh D. Grossman as he shares his research on discrimination in college student admissions. Josh is a Ph.D. candidate in Computational Social Science at Stanford University’s Department of Management Science & Engineering. Broadly, his research applies tools from data science to issues in public policy and he is particularly interested in understanding how racial disparate impact manifests itself in judicial decisions and college admissions. He recently interned as a data scientist at Recidiviz, a non-profit that builds technology to reduce incarceration. Previously, he worked as a data scientist at the Stanford Computational Policy Lab and IXL Learning, a K–12 education technology company. He completed his bachelor’s degree at Harvard University, majoring in Neurobiology and minoring in Statistics. His work is supported by a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship (NSF GRFP).
