In America today, one third of all murders go unsolved. Not only does this leave killers on the streets, the lack of justice is devastating for victims’ loved ones, worsens the relationship between the community and the police, and costs millions of dollars. For this project, I conducted an in-depth analysis of nearly 30 studies of crime data to understand why this is happening and how we can fix it. My research led me to the solution of a multi-branch nonprofit organization that served make best practices accessible for investigative units and detectives, while leveraging the power of the crime-obsessed community for crowdsourced investigation.

The Atlanta public transportation system (MARTA) is widely disliked. It is known for its ineffective layout, never running on time and of course, the characters that linger there. MARTA even has its own parody twitter account. So, my team and I set out to see how we could improve the MARTA experience without altering its actual infrastructure.

In the summer of 2019 my friend, a Teach For America teacher, explained that everyday he shows up to the classroom and feels like he can’t keep up, so I set out to understand what was making his job so difficult. After a visit to his school in rural North Carolina, I discovered that there was no good system for him to get feedback on his teaching, or to help him understand his students’ progress. I redesigned Google Classroom for data-driven teaching that helps teachers understand how their students are learning and helps to adjust their pacing guide accordingly.
