What's New?

I'm currently drafting new papers and working on open-source projects. On top of teaching and community organizing, this is shaping up to be an interesting fall!

I recently published this paper with Matthew Zook on Bitcoin, blockchain, and algorithmic governance.

I am organizing a Python Working Group at the University of Kentucky. The initial aim is to teach people with little to no Python experience how to gather, analyze, and visualize data. As the course content evolves and expands, it will be stored here.

As always, all of my work professionally and academically is kept as open-source as possible. To find my papers, blogs, classes, and other projects, check out my GitHub.


Developers Guild

I currently organize the Bluegrass Developers Guild in Kentucky. Please join us on Slack (request access through the Guild website) and attend our monthly Open Code sessions!


Data Science, Python, and other Research Groups

I organize and sponsor the Bluegrass Data Science Group and the LexPy Python group. There are monthly meetups for topics related to data science, Python, R, blockchains, GIS, and much more! Please join us via the links above where I will be posting the events for these groups.
