Sara Farmer
Data Scientist, Change Assembly

I’m a crisis data nerd, helping people build situation pictures of disasters from social media feeds and online data, and building the communities and technologies needed to support that.

My work right now includes coding for Ushahidi, writing a white paper on Sensor Journalism for Columbia jSchool, putting together a course on ICT for Development for Columbia SIPA, helping to start a coworking space and building OpenCrisis, an information and mentoring space for crisis data scientists, crisismappers and crisismapping leads. And our cat Emily writes a blog called I Can Haz Datascience. I’d love to compare notes with anyone working in any of these spaces!

Does the course go clockwise or anticlockwise? It would help supporters to know which direction to look in!
