My name is Ruthi and I’m a graduate student in mathematics. My thesis is on something really theoretical, but I also care a lot about more practical matters. In fact, I care deeply about making the world a better place, and asking questions about how we live and what that means. And I believe in using data to do that.
So sometimes I read some claim about social justice or politics and I think “Yeah, but can I show that with the data?” or “I wondering what that means for <related more technical question>”. So here I post this prodding of what’s going on with the data behind what I read.
